To competently serve families, social work students must understand the theories and issues surrounding family violence. This innovative textbook comprehensively discusses three types of family violence: child abuse and maltreatment, intimate partner violence, and elder abuse.

Discussions on assessments and interventions are provided for the adult victims of family violence, adult survivors of child abuse, child witnesses of domestic violence, adolescent victims of dating violence, elderly victims, and perpetrators of abuse. Assessment procedures and evidence-based treatments are also discussed. This book also covers a broad range of vulnerable populations and addresses their needs for particular services, legislative action, and strategies for effective intervention. The book meets the criteria of the Council on Social Work Education with its focus on ethics, populations-at-risk, and diversity.

Intended for both bachelor's- and master's-level social work students, this text includes a variety of features such as case studies from real-life stories of family violence in every chapter, key terms, discussion questions, and more.

Key topics:

  • Court structures and procedures, specialized court services for families experiencing violence, investigative interviewing, and social workers' roles within the judicial system
  • Identifying and investigating child maltreatment, discussing symptoms and consequences, child interviewing, ethical dilemmas of mandated reporting, and the foster care system
  • Intimate partner violence, including theoretical perspectives, laws and policies, financial costs, learned helplessness, the battered woman syndrome, orders of protection, mandatory arrest, and more
  • Elder abuse, including an overview of theories, assessments, risk factors, Adult Protective Services, caregiver interventions, and more
