Written by experts with a combined 50 years of experience teaching researching and helping victims this book provides practical steps to take in responding to domestic violence for practitioners and lay people, as well as ideas for policies with which to address domestic violence. Narratives by victims of intimate partner abuse provide a framework from which to assess the problem and then address the problem.
