Editorial Reviews

Ph.D. - Psyc CRITIQUES: Contemporary Psychology
"With noteworthy reliance on a myriad of behavioral science sources, Barnett et al. explore the following: research methodology, assessment, and theories; child physical and sexual abuse; child neglect and psychological maltreatment; key issues in child maltreatment; dating violence, stalking, and sexual assault; intimate partner violence; and abuse of older adults and people with disabilities. There are appendixes for resources and violence incidence estimates. The quality of this book makes it potentially useful for undergraduate and graduate courses in all of the mental health disciplines. Those who are already working in domestic violence will be familiar with much of the substance, but the material is up to date and should help the experienced practitioner gain cutting-edge knowledge and refine skills. "- John T. Firsching,
Diane Hiebert-Murphy
"I think that the authors do a tremendous job of integrating findings from a very large body of research and present their analysis in a reader-friendly way. The text is particularly strong in orienting the reader to the research issues, including the current state of knowledge in the area... I have found the text to be very well done and extremely useful in providing students with an introduction to the very broad field of family violence. I have recommended the text to colleagues and students. I applaud the authors for this work and thank them for creating such a comprehensive text."
Jean Giles-Sims
"This book includes an impressive overview of different types of violence and organizes a large amount of research material to make it accessible to the upper-level undergraduate. Students will easily follow the organization of topics, themes and questions, and long chapters include several intermediary summaries, which is good.”

She remains active in the field of family violence by reviewing articles for a large number of journals and performing as an external grant reviewer for a few organizations. She serves on the editorial board of the new journal, Youth Violence and Juvenile Justice. She also continues research on the impact of transitional housing on the lives of battered women.
