Counselors-in-training, educators, and clinicians will benefit greatly from this in-depth and thought-provoking look at family violence, its effects, and treatment options. This book examines the major issues and current controversies in the field, provides background information on each type of family violence, and offers
strategies for combating domestic abuse. In an informative discussion designed to enhance counselors’ ability to assess and treat each type of family violence, Dr. Lawson covers both well-recognized forms of maltreatment, such as the abuse of women and children, and less understood issues, such as female-on-male intimacy
violence, parent and elder abuse, same-sex violence, and dating violence and stalking. Case studies throughout the text illustrate clinical applications in action, and recommended readings are provided for further study.

“Scholars can breathe a ‘sigh of relief’ that someone has finally provided a scientific overview of family violence counseling methods and their effectiveness. Dr. Lawson’s expertise is noteworthy, and this book makes a vital contribution to the field.”
