'Dr. Hoff skilfully dissects the issue of violence from youth to old age and across varied ethnicities and races, demonstrating that this cancer has no boundaries. The potential solutions she presents use a public health approach for widest possible appeal.' -- John Casken, University of Hawai'i at Manoa 'The balance of theory and practice provides scholars and students ways to anchor teaching and applications through real-life narratives and experiences. To practitioners and advocates from any field or background Lee Ann Hoff provides a useful source for accessible knowledge and reported experience to formulate transdisciplinary interventions.' -- Maria Vargas-Moniz, Instituto Superior de Psicologia Aplicada, Lisboa Portugal 'This is a must-read especially for those of us engaged in addressing both the personal and political aspects of violence and abuse in therapeutic settings.' -- Rodolfo R. Nolasco, Jr., Providence Theological Seminary, Canada 'Dr. Hoff's book speaking to the issues of indigenous people is a breath of fresh air to a topic too long relegated to the back pages of history.' -- Michael E. Bird, Past President of the American Public Health Association.
