Overview

A feminist psychological perspective on the treatment of battered women partners is taken by this volume, which offers a challenge to traditional family therapy intervention in family violence.

Experts on legal, ethical and practical issues propose alternatives to the family systems approach and address key areas such as: the psychological state of women who remain in violent relationships; current laws governing family violence; training therapists to recognize family violence; multiethnic perspectives on the problem; and the impact of abusive parental relationships on children. Specific guidelines for individual work with victims are also presented.
