Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Cheryl Laskowski, DNS, RN, CS (Daemen College)
Description: This multidisciplinary text addresses issues relating to the identification and treatment of battered women and their family members.
Purpose: Contributors from various disciplines highlight time-limited therapeutic strategies to be used in response to the needs of battered women and their family members. The editor has written extensively in this field, contributors include multidisciplinary educators and clinicians.
Audience: The book is written for nurses, physicians, social workers, shelter personnel, and other providers who have contact with victims of battering. Beginning clinicians as well as more expert practitioners will find this book to be a useful addition to their bookshelves. I also recommend that libraries purchase this text as it is an important resource for health and human services students as well as for professionals working within health and social systems.
Features: Throughout the text, a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of battered women is emphasized. In several chapters, Roberts' Seven Stage Model of Crisis Intervention (1996) is described and applied. The use of this model provides the reader with an organizing framework within which time-limited, appropriate, and sensitive treatment can be provided. Case illustrations throughout the book highlight the human experience of suffering as lived by the victims of battering. Issues relating to lesbians in abusive relationships, adolescents in abusive families, and multi-cultural experiences with battering increase the reader's awareness of the often hidden victims of domestic violence.
Assessment: This book excels at integrating information relating to assessment and treatment approaches for victims of battering and their family members. The text is accessible to both the novice in this area and to the more experienced clinician. Empowering strategies for families are emphasized and readers are sensitized to the lived experience of battering. I highly recommend this text for all social service and healthcare professionals.

    Successful treatment of domestic violence

    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.

    Groundbreaking, thought provoking, and brilliantly written!

    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!
