Publisher's Description

Violence in the home is one of the most damaging and widespread of social problems. It is an issue that cuts across all socioeconomic, racial, ethnic, gender, and age boundaries. This important book reviews the most current theoretical explanations of family violence and then links theory to practice. It looks at the systems and institutions that interact with families, which are mandated to provide protection and services, and explores the current debates surrounding family violence and public policy. In addition, Kurst-Swanger explores the role of power in abusive relationships and considers the short- and long-term consequences of abuse. This insightful book will be a practical resource for professionals and of interest to all those concerned with the far-reaching impact of family violence.

Editorial Reviews

"Kurst-Swanger and Petcosky have developed an excellent resource for both academics and practitioners that gives readers a broad range of knowledge about each type of family violence in this field . . .This book is equally appropriate as course text for both undergraduate and graduate levels, and as practical guide for workers in the field. The authors should be applauded for putting together such a rich resource."-IHOICE, D.A. Matthews
