Editorial Reviews

George W. Burns
Dr. Pat Pernicano is a masterful teller of stories that touch the heart, show pathways through the complex maze of life, and offer hope. She knows how to communicate her professional knowledge and experience of working with domestic violence, practically and insightfully. Whether helping others or seeking personal help, you really can’t pass by this immensely useful book.
Jill H. Rathus
Outsmarting the Riptide of Domestic Violence author Pat Pernicano has formulated a unique approach to helping clinicians work with female victims of intimate partner violence. Not only does she define mindfulness in simple and accessible language, but she devotes an entire section to discussing its relevance and providing exercises for its practice. Professionals of all disciplines who work with domestic violence victims will no doubt appreciate this thoughtful compilation of stories and practices to enhance and refresh their work.
Kristine M. Kinniburgh
The author provides a sound theoretical overview of the impact of domestic violence on individuals and provides the clinician with sample stories that, through use of metaphor, seek to normalize challenges that emerge within the change process, provoke dialogue, and highlight themes that are relevant to this population.
