This comprehensive volume offers the clinician a treasure trove of statistics, theory, insight and approaches to dealing with domestic violence. It is a must-have book for the clinician's personal library. -- Athena A. Drewes, director of Clinical Training, Astor Services for Children and Families
Javier and Herron present a comprehensive text on the assessment and treatment of intimate partner violence. The book offers perspectives on the dynamics of abuse, with focused attention on diversity issues. The chapters are informative, practical, and easy to read and could be used in family violence and couples therapy courses. -- Gregory Canillas, PhD, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology
For professionals who deal with domestic violence (DV), this volume is an ideal new tool. Its chapters describe evidence-based resources to understand, prevent, and reduce DV while also offering unusual features not found in other volumes, in a carefully crafted volume that is the state of the art in coping with DV. -- Harold Takooshian, PhD, past-president, Division of International Psychology, American Psychological Association
