Daniel Jay Sonkin, Ph.D. is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in an independent practice in Sausalito, California. Since 1981, his work has focused on the treatment of individuals and couples facing a variety of interpersonal problems. In addition to his clinical experience, he has testified as an expert witness since 1977 in criminal cases where domestic violence is an issue. As one of the early specialists in the field of family violence, Dr. Sonkin has developed a widely used protocol for treating male batterers. His book, Learning to Live Without Violence: A Handbook for Men has been published in English, Spanish and Japanese and is utilized by treatment programs around the world. He is also the author of numerous articles and books on domestic violence and child abuse.
For the past twenty years he has been integrating attachment theory and neurobiology into his clinical work with perpetrators and victims of violence, as well as his general psychotherapy patients. He has co-edited a book with Don Dutton entitled Intimate Violence: Contemporary Treatment Innovations, published by Haworth Trauma and Maltreatment Press. In it, he and Don Dutton wrote a chapter on treating domestic violence from an attachment perspective. Dr. Sonkin is on the editorial review board of the journal Partner Abuse: New Directions in Research, Intervention, and Policy and a special consultant to the journal Violence and Victims.
