Michael Paul Johnson (born December 20, 1942)[1] is emeritus professor of sociology, women's studies, and African and African American studies at Pennsylvania State University,[2] having taught there for over thirty years.[3] It is where he developed his typology (known as "Johnson's typology") for describing intimate partner violence.[4]

Johnson is an "expert on domestic violence".[5] He was a member of the editorial boards of the Journal of Family Theory and Review[6] and the Journal of Marriage and Family.[citation needed]

Education[edit]

Johnson obtained his BA degree in sociology from Knox College (Galesburg, Illinois) (1965),[7] his MA in sociology from the University of Iowa (1969),[8] and his PhD in sociology from the University of Michigan (1974).[9]

PAIR project[edit]

In 1981 a long-term study of courtship and marriage of 168 couples was implemented by Ted Huston.[10] The project began at Penn State and was intended to last through the first two and a half years of marriage, but it was extended and extra waves of data were collected. In 1985 the project transferred to the University of Texas at Austin and a follow-up set of interviews with the participants took place in 1991.[11] Johnson has been a collaborator on the PAIR project since its early days, with a particular interest in 'conceptions of commitment'.[12]

Johnson argues that there are four major types of intimate partner violence,[4][14] a finding supported by some[15] but rejected by others.[16] The types of violence identified by Johnson are:[15]

  1. Situational couple violence
  2. Intimate terrorism[17]
  3. Violent resistance
  4. Mutual violent control: Johnson describes this as a couple who "could be viewed as two intimate terrorists battling for control".

View on feminism[edit]

Johnson describes his definition of feminism as:[18][19]

Personal life[edit]

Johnson is retired and living in the foothills of the Appalachians with his partner Maureen; he also has two children and a grandchild.[20]
