about this item

Working with clients who have experienced domestic violence is known to be complex, with particularly high rates of client non-attendance or leaving therapy prematurely. In this book, the clients themselves talk about what they found difficult in accessing help, why they left previous counselling early and what they ultimately found helpful. It brings together the existing literature and client views to present a new perspective on how to approach counselling with individuals who have experienced domestic violence. Uniquely, it explores the similarities and differences between the expressed needs of female and male survivors of domestic violence, as well as the difficulties currently experienced in service provision. In identifying and explaining views of good practice for therapists and their organisations, this book is essential reading for any counsellor or psychotherapist working with clients who have experienced domestic violence.
