Women battering is one of the most pervasive and dangerous problems in American society today. An estimated 8.7 million women fall victim to violence in their own homes each year. Helping Battered Women provides students with the most current, empirically-based and realistic overview of policies and intervention methods, combining a rich array of perspectives by internationally recognized professors and scholars in the fields of social work, criminology, and clinical psychology. The authors provide cogent and clear arguments for advocacy and social change in such places as battered women's shelters, police precincts, state legislatures, family courts, and criminal courts. The book focuses on a full range of policies and programs which include case management service models, 24-hour hotlines and crisis intervention programs, social worker-police collaboration, mandated arrest of batterers, electronic technology, and group/play therapy for the children of battered women, methods which are all effective in breaking the inter-generational cycle of abuse.

Review:


"An excellent reader to accompany any course on violence, women's studies, and other courses offered in sociology, psychology, social work, and criminal justice. Well organized, timely, and effective in addressing a serious social problem from a micro and macro perspective."--Anthony W. Zumpetta, West Chester University


"Thorough coverage of the feminine dilemma. Good historical development and recommendations for intervention. Helpful to students entering practice with this population."--Jan Parmenter, Evangel College


"Innovative, timely, well-written, and solidly researched! The authors do a brilliant job of providing policy analysis and quantitative and qualitative research findings in a reader-friendly manner. This is a fact-filled book, offering a wealth of information on topics ranging from young battered women, elderly battered women, and children of battered women to the latest technologies which aid victims in persecutor-based programs."--C. Aaron McNeece, Director, Institute of Human Services, Florida State University


"Fills a major gap in works dealing with domestic violence. This pragmatic work provides a comprehensive analysis of the major policy reforms and recent program developments in crisis intervention and social services for battered women. The authors' original chapters demonstrate a vast knowledge in the field. This book includes the most concrete techniques and reality oriented polices for reducing women battering substantially. If professionals and informed citizens are going to purchase one book, this should be it. It is the first and only pathbreaking book with illuminating cases and real solutions."--Roslyn Muraskin, Director, Long Island Women's Institute at Long Island University


"A 'must have' reference for all professionals! Dr. Roberts has distilled the latest and most critical information in research, public policy advances, legal and clinical responses, and service delivery in this comprehensive text. The most insightful and useful book in the domestic violence field."--Jane Nady Burnley, Director, Valor and the National Victim Assistance Academy, and Former Director, U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime


"This well researched and written volume, prepared by a diverse range of practitioners and scholars, brings us back to the reality of one of our nation's major social problems. Popular myths are dispelled, current statistics are provided, and issues of treatment, legal protection, policy reform and advocacy are explored. The inclusion of the elderly as an at-risk population and case vignettes makes this an important and useful volume."--Sheldon R. Gelman, Dean, Wurzweiler School of Social Work at Yeshiva University


"An essential book for all persons whose work brings them into contact with traumatized and abused women....Illuminates this social problem, reveals the impact of psychological trauma on families and provides practical approaches for helping battered women. Roberts and contributors skillfully integrate actual case vignettes, social policy, crisis theory, and therapeutic modalities in this clear and informative book."--Ann Wolbert Burgess, Chair and Professor of Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing, University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing


"[T]his outstanding book...provides a wealth of practical information and insights for practitioners, administrators and trainers in the field of family violence. The authors provide up-to-date information on federal and state laws, policies, and programs aimed at reducing women abuse. I highly recommend this book..."--Marjory D. Fields, Supervising Judge,Family Court of the State of New York, County of the Bronx (from the Foreword)
