Domestic Violence: A Reference Handbook
This comprehensive work examines the world of the abused and the abuser while providing timely information on treatment, education, and prevention. A survey of the history of abuse reveals its roots in ancient laws and religions and its pervasiveness in all societies. Myths, statistics, and the effects of domestic violence on children are explored, as are the legal cases and court actions that have shaped the movement to end violence in the home. A state-by-state directory of leading agencies and organizations and a review of the programs available to both the victim and the abuser provide immediate referral for those seeking help for themselves or others, and annotated listings of print and nonprint resources direct the reader to additional research sources. This volume provides a wealth of objective information on this very disturbing problem.
