9781878060952: Violence Against Women

Written by professionals in the fields of clinical service and research, Violence Against Women seeks to provide a broad and deep perspective into the current scientific understanding of how men, women, adolescents, and children come to be harmed from intimate partner violence (IPV). Transcending national, cultural, and socioeconomic boundaries, this text examines a wide range of relationships that come under the heading of intimate partner violence by taking a culturally sensitive, international approach to exploring the issues that underpin family violence issues, dating violence, and injuries children suffer when partners and caregivers perpetrate violence. In depth analyses on power, aggression, and hierarchies extant within the animal kingdom are included to illuminate similarities to human relationships. As the problem of intimate partner violence and violence against women is not limited to one country or one region of the globe, the authors seek to use a public health perspective that is international in scope to explore the issues. By articulating what is known with certainty, what is suspected, and what areas for future work and intervention are on the horizon throughout the world, this educational resource offers definitive data that can be applied by professionals who work within the context of intimate partner violence worldwide. With authors from health care, social science, law enforcement, and public policy collaborating to provide robust integrated chapters that inform clinical care, social policy, and research workers, the text serves as a single source for the multidisciplinary information that one needs in order to gain a sound understanding of the pernicious problem found in intimate partner violence.

Review:

Violence Against Women: A Contemporary Examination of Intimate Partner Violence is a comprehensive overview of violence perpetrated against women. Experts share their knowledge, from understanding the scope of the problem, to assessment and treatment while including a review of multifaceted legal issues. Emphasized is the need for cross training and cooperation among professionals of different disciplines. The text discusses that the distinctly different intervention systems for child abuse and intimate partner violence can make it very difficult for victims to navigate. An integrated approach that may include co-located services to provide better support for victims of intimate partner violence and their children is suggested. Child abuse professionals will benefit by gaining a better understanding of intimate partner violence, the significant impact on children, and the need for professionals to employ a collaborative approach. --

Violence Against Women is a critical and comprehensive tool for anyone in the field of social work or mental health. The text provides a clear understanding of the complex and often overlapping factors that contribute to both victimization and perpetration of violence. It is applicable for a broad audience and provides valuable tools for the multi-disciplinary team approach needed to address this issue. The text educates the reader on the lasting effects of violence against women from a global standpoint and also provides valuable insight into effective therapeutic responses across cultures and victim populations. Specific chapters which address child maltreatment and the commercial sexual exploitation of women and children offer new perspectives for systemic responses to both parents and children in the child protection system. While social workers and mental health professionals will utilize the theoretical and clinical approaches recommended within the text, law enforcement professionals will gain valuable investigation insights, medical professionals will benefit from assessment techniques and victim dynamics identified, and prosecutors will gain tools to successfully maneuver through the unique legal components of these types of crimes. This is truly a must read for anyone who advocates for the vulnerable in our society. --
