This informative and thoughtful book demonstrates the value of social group work concepts applied to domestic and other forms of violence. Written by social work practitioners, each chapter focuses on a different form of violence and the appropriate models of social work with groups. Using detailed accounts of their own practice and research, professionals explain behavioral, interactional, and humanistic approaches toward varying service service populations--including perpetrators, as well as victims or “survivors.” The samples of creative interventions with victims of childhood sexual abuse, rape, and domestic battering will inspire sympathy and reflection among all professionals who too often see the consequences of victimization in their own practices.
