The first edition of this book was praised for the wealth of practical information and concrete suggestions it provided regarding the assessment and treatment of battered intimate partners, batterers, children who witness abuse, and couples who engage in violent interactions. The revised second edition presents important findings from the ever expanding base of empirical data on abusive relationships, includes updated prevalence information, and describes new techniques for working with this population. Includes assessment checklists, a violence knowledge self-quiz, and numerous other resources of great value to practitioners.


“Domestic violence is at epidemic levels in our society, afflicting between 4 and 8 million couples per year. The second edition of Harway and Hansen’s Spouse Abuse: Assessing & Treating Battered Women, Batterers, & Their Children is an invaluable resource on this most serious problem. It is a highly readable volume which brings together the most up-to-date research and clinical expertise on the assessment and treatment of domestic violence. Highly recommended for professionals and students alike!”

-Ronald F. Levant, EdD, ABPP, 113th President of the American Psychological Association;
Co-Editor, A New Psychology of Men; Dean and Professor, Nova Southeastern University

“With increased public awareness of spousal abuse and its consequences, this book provides critical information for mental health professionals which will enhance their work with victims, batterers, and families.”

-Dorothy W. Cantor, PsyD, 105th President of the American Psychological Association;
Co-Author of Finding Your Voice - A Woman’s Guide to Using Self Talk for Fulfilling Relationships, Work, and Life
