Neville Robertson needs to go back to school.
Neville Robertson, supposedly an expert in psychology, needs to go back to school:
"The vast majority of perpetrators of violence were men", Dr Robertson said. (NZ Herald, 10 Sept 2001).
Neville Robertson is wrong.
Psychology deserves more than opinions from Women's Refuge, Rape Crisis etc. Unfortunately such beliefs obviously colour his work.
(Robertson needs to urgently look at the results of the Dunedin longitudinal study, for example)
