About this item

First published in 1985, this book is designed to help professionals in ‘caring’ professions understand and deal with the problem of violent behaviour. It explains how theoretical ideas may be translated into practical strategies for the reduction or elimination of violence. It also highlights the issues and problems involved in the evaluation of intervention strategies aimed at dealing with aggressive behaviour.

Although the book is based firmly on scientific research, the emphasis is on the practical problem of dealing with violence. As such it will be of interest to those studying social care and social work, but also those whose professional duties bring them face to face with violent behaviour.
