Yes, in many cases they can. Even as a prisoner you may have to receive psychological counseling, but no one can force that prisoner to better themselves (many do.) He won't be doing too much drinking and could be doing some drugs in prison (they get it somehow). For what it's worth ... stay away from him and get on with your life!

How would an abusive ex feel when he saw you sitting in a courtroom without emotion when he was sentenced?

Only he alone knows how he feels, but, my guess would be he'd have resentment towards you because in his abusive state towards you (the victim) he does not truly believe he has done anything wrong. Abusers take total control of their victims and they feel that the victim is their property just like their home and car. Jail or prison time does not generally help abusers nor does counseling. The stats are very low that abusers will ever change. Good for you for taking this abusive behavior to the court system and you should be proud of yourself. Marcy

Why do abuse programs say that an abuser must want to change before they can do anything when the whole point of an ABUSER program shoud be an environment that forces abusers to change?

View it as you would a person convicted of a crime and sentenced to prison. Why has the person stopped committing the particular crime? Obviously because he is forced to be in an environment that won't allow him to rob, rape or murder. It does not mean that once he is released, he won't chose to committ the crimes he did previously.An abusive person can be locked up, but will they stop being abusive once they are released? Probably not, and the abusive behavior can be worse than before, as the abuser feels increased resentment towards people he felt were "forcing" him to change. Unless a person is ready to admit they have abusive behaviors and that they are abusive towards an individual(s), they are not going to be willing to accept any kind of counseling on abuse or anger management, and they are less likely to feel guilt or regret over their abusive histories. Is counseling and therapy for abusers an ideal solution? Obviously not, as a great many abusers will never see their behavior as wrong or believe they are the ones that need treatment for it.AnswerThe point is (1) that an abuser must honestly recognize that he/she is abusing one or more other person, (2) acknowledge that it is wrong and (3) learn new patterns of behaviour. There's no quick fix - and in many cases there may be no solution at all, other than to leave them.
