This book provides the foundation for the effective treatment of battered women and their children and adolescents for the 21st century. Roberts and his author team of leading clinicians provide a wealth of useful multifaceted sequential practice guidelines for effective counseling and treatment. The 21 comprehensive chapters are all original and written by the leading experts in the U.S. This exceptionally well-written book is the first to provide a step-by-step guide and discussion on how to do crisis intervention, cognitive therapy, and conjoint therapy with traumatized battered women and their vulnerable children. This excellent book includes the application of clinical techniques and models to realistic case studies. This eminently readable book includes everything one needs to know about effectively intervening in domestic violence cases.

This is the most comprehensive and readable book to date, based on the inner voices of chronically and intermittenly battered women, their children, domestic violence advocates, and social workers. The case illustrations are dramatic and realistic. This volumme is highly practical, and provides step by step strategies including crisis intervention, cognitive therapy, and short-term treatment models. The multicultural content and information on specialized clinical populations offer knowledge helpful to both agencies and practitioners. Counselors can improve their practice skills with this invaluable book. If you are going to read a book on domestic violence this year, this is it!
