When Violence Begins at Home: A Comprehensive Guide to Understanding and Ending Domestic Abuse
Since its initial publication, this far-reaching reference has provided professionals and victims of abuse with guidance on everything from indicators of an abusive relationship to domestic violence legislation, from antiburnout tips for helpers to advice on leaving an abusive partner.
This updated edition addresses new research and programs, adding information on date rape drugs, stalking, cyber-stalking, pregnancy and domestic violence, and the effectiveness of batterer intervention programs. Current controversial social and legal issues such as mutual battering, child welfare and "failure to protect" policies, child custody and visitation rights for batterers, mandatory arrests, and welfare reform are also covered.
Two new chapters devote attention to domestic violence in the military and to the challenging and rewarding role of those who work with battered women and their children.
New resources have been included to reflect the ever-evolving wealth of books, web sites, and agencies available to both helpers and those in need.
