Color Atlas of Domestic Violence
Mosby, 2004 - Family & Relationships - 213 pages
The Color Atlas of Domestic Violence is the first text to look specifically and comprehensively at the injuries frequently seen as a result of domestic violence. This atlas provides a visual aid for the examination, identification, and documentation of domestic injuries. It includes extensive visual content, as well as content on the cycles of violence and epidemiology of domestic violence. Specific injury types and patterns are both discussed and presented pictorially. The collection of needed forensic evidence is covered to help assure appropriate prosecution of the perpetrator. Psychological violence is included in addition to physical injury violence. This book can be read in its entirety to provide a strong background in domestic violence injuries or used as a spot reference to help understand when specific injuries may be the result of domestic violence. The primary focus is on adult females - however, males, children, gays and lesbians, and older adults as victims are covered as well.
