Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This is a realistic and detailed discussion of the unfortunate occurrence of intimate partner violence that affects so many lives.
Purpose: The purpose is to emphasize the need for increased responsiveness to the particular concerns of women and the design of practices that not only work but take an individual rather than a one size fits all approach. The purpose is also to educate the reader to where we have been, where we are, and where we need to go in terms of addressing the needs of abused women and their families. The book exceeds expectations.
Audience: This is a must-read for anyone involved or interested in working with victims of domestic violence. Counselors, clinicians in mental health and general medicine, public service officials, first responders, and relatives of victims will find this to be an insightful book. The authors are both credible and tireless individuals working for the betterment of abused victims.
Features: The book smartly takes the reader on a historical exploration of past practices in a number of chapters to emphasize how far we have come and what is still needed for victims of domestic violence. It then provides an in-depth discussion of the various responses from advocacy groups, the mental health system, and of course the justice system. Readers are made fully aware of the complexity, the contradictions, and the difficulty of reporting abuse and the lack of services currently in place for domestic violence victims. The book delves into learned helplessness, the inability of abuse victims to escape the cycle of abuse, and the power their abusers have over them. The book rounds out these excellent discussions with a chapter on recommendations for future reform.
Assessment: This is the quintessential book for a realistic and an authoritative update on domestic violence. This is a weekend read that will stimulate and empower those working with domestic violence victims.
