Violence in gay and lesbian domestic partnerships
Harrington Park Press, May 17, 1996 - Social Science - 121 pages
The publication of Violence in Gay and Lesbian Domestic Partnerships signifies the growing official recognition of domestic violence within lesbian and gay relationships as a social problem worthy of serious attention and intervention. This book is unique in that it is the only book available which comprehensively addresses the social service needs of gay and lesbian domestic violence victims and perpetrators. The contributors give specific suggestions to improve service providers' responses to gay and lesbian victims of domestic violence. Editors Renzetti and Miley begin by providing readers with an overview of the problem and the responses of the domestic violence movement and other social service providers. Contributors to this book were actively addressing the problem of same-sex domestic violence long before it was officially "discovered, " and their chapters are sure to raise your awareness of the problem and emphasize the need to develop specialized services for both victims and perpetrators.
