Lundy Bancroft is an author, workshop leader, and consultant on domestic abuse and child maltreatment. His work focuses on three areas:

  • Training professionals on best practices for intervening with male perpetrators of violence against women, toward the goal of promoting accountability and requiring change.
  • Training professionals on the dynamics of emotional injury and recovery in children who are exposed to a man who abuses their mother, to prepare participants to offer the most effective and safe assistance possible to children and their mothers.
  • Supporting healing and empowerment for abused women, with an emphasis on advocating for the human rights of mothers and their children.




Lundy works collaboratively with various agencies to promote practices and strategies to improve our nation’s response to domestic violence and make safety and justice not just a priority, but also a reality. These agencies ensure that victims of domestic violence, advocates, community-based programs, educators, legal assistance providers, law enforcement and court personnel, health care providers, policy makers and government leaders have access to up-­to-­date information on best practices, policies, research and victim resources.
