Domestic Violence

February 1998 | 328 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
`The book is organized into seven chapters. Each can stand alone - offering a focus on a particular aspect of the research, with a summary and conclusion and/or recommendations - and they also link well together. Areas covered include: risk factors; the effects of partner violence on victims, perpetrators and children; sexual violence; same-sex couple violence; ethnic minority violence; and prevention, intervention and training' - British Journal of Social Work

Twenty years of accumulated knowledge and research into violence towards partners are synthesized in this landmark book. Topics examined include: marital rape; the effects of partner violence on children; partner violence among same sex couples; and partner violence in ethnic minority families. A final chapter examines issues of prevention and treatment, and provides empirically based recommendations for future research and practice.
