Overview

I Am Not Your Victim: Anatomy of Domestic Abuse, Second Edition, vividly details the evolution of domestic violence during the 16-year marriage of author Beth Sipe. Encouraged to publish her story by her therapist and co-author, Evelyn J. Hall, Beth relates the background and events leading up to and immediately following the tragic act of desperation that ended the life of her sadistic perpetrator. Beth's subsequent mishandling by the police, the military, a mental health professional, and the welfare system illustrates how women like Beth face further revictimization and neglect by the very systems that should provide support and assistance. Insightful commentaries written by experts in the field follow Beth's story and deepen readers’ understanding of the causes and process of spousal abuse, why battered women stay, and the dynamic consequences of domestic violence.

This updated edition includes new commentaries and an epilogue that tracks what happened to Beth in the years following the book’s publication.

About the Author

Beth Sipe is a formerly battered woman who is now a survivor. After sixteen years of abuse, she left her violent husband, only to be more severely harassed and threatened when she became independent. The mother of three adult children, she has reclaimed her identity and lives a quiet, productive life.

Evelyn J. Hall, Ph.D., was a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice for fourteen years. She served as Clinical Supervisor of the Counseling Office for Temporary Assistance for Domestic Crisis (TADC), a program dealing specifically with domestic violence. A guest speaker for various national and local groups, she taught continuing education classes at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, such as Women and Violence and Families in Crisis. Dr. Hall is now retired.
