Designed to provide in-depth guidelines for the most effective interventions in family violence, the volume explains the procedures used in a number of innovative programs. Highlighted by explicit and often dramatic case material, the editor points to the need for therapeutic attention to all family members. The reader will also find the implications for practice gleaned from the latest research on battered women.
Completely revised and updated, this volume focuses on short-term treatment and intervention, as well as working with special populations that include multicultural groups and oppressed / vulnerable populations. Dr. Roberts also addresses domestic violence in health care settings.
Any practitioner in the field of domestic violence---experienced or in training---should consider this essential reading.
