Domestic Violence Advocacy: Complex Lives/Difficult Choices, Second Edition is a comprehensive and highly practical resource for anyone working with domestic violence victims. The essential elements and values of the victim-defined approach provide the foundation for a completely revised exploration of all victims’ perspectives and advocates’ roles. Authors Jill Davies and Eleanor Lyon draw on the far-reaching progress and increased knowledge of the field and delve deeply into the experiences of victims, their perspectives and decision-making, culture, and risks. Attentive to the real- world context of limited time, resources, and options for victims and for advocates, this enlightening text focuses on what is feasible and offers ideas for working within such constraints.

Review:

""If I was to recommend only one book for a domestic violence advocate to read in their career, it would be this one. Every person interested in domestic violence work should do themselves and the survivors they hope to help a favor by reading this and integrating the concepts presented into their advocacy. We owe a debt of gratitude to the authors of this book for providing such a clear guide on effective work with domestic violence survivors." "--Rachel Ramirez

"[This book] is a must read for all disciplines providing services to battered women. Survivors are not served in a vacuum, so it is imperative that system providers understand their role in keeping them safe." --Sandy Huntzinger

""Working with battered women often produces ethical dilemmas about what is the best course of action to take. [This book] provides a framework of women-defined advocacy that respects the rights and dignity of each woman, as well as her right to self-determination. In the analysis of risks associated with violence and abuse, the woman's voice is once again heard and her perspective guides the process of safety planning.""--Gary Dick

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book introduced a new model of woman defined advocacy that was designed to bridge the gap that sometimes occurs between a battered woman s perspective and a victim s advocate s perception. Created to improve service delivery to women who are victims of domestic violence, this model emphasized placing attention on the victim s assessment of the risk in the violent relationship and on her decision making. The authors aim to help advocates better understand battered women s decisions, including the decision to stay in an abusive relationship, to improve advocacy for victims with various cultural experiences and backgrounds, and to provide advocates with assistance in redesigning their services so they may better meet the needs of battered women. The second edition will be updated to include current research, greater emphasis on working with marginalized populations, an expanded advocacy framework, more emphasis on client strengths and strengths based perspective, and more pedagogical elements will be introduced.
