Description
Summary:Offers practical, hands-on materials for conducting assessments and providing treatments that take the entire family system into account. Rich with research that shows women are abusive within relationships at rates equal to men, the book eschews the field{19}s reliance on traditional domestic violence theory and treatment, which favors violence intervention for men and victim services for women and ignores the dynamics of the majority of violent relationships. The author instead identifies measures and protocols that help practitioners make accurate assessments and then go on to carefully select the treatment modality and curricula for group, couples, and/or individual work that will help clients break their particular cycle of violence while ensuring victim safety.
