Overview

Helping Battered Women: New Perspectives and Remedies

Women battering is one of the most pervasive and dangerous problems in
American society. Helping abused women escape and remain free from violent relationships is the challenge the authors of this book have undertaken. They focus on the recently developed and implemented public policies, programs and intervention methods effective in the elimination of domestic violence and breaking the inter-generational cycle of abuse.
