About this book

This book provides a research-based analysis of the dynamics of several types of violence in families and close relationships, as well as a discussion of theories relating to the experiences of victims. Drawing on recent research data and case studies from their own clinical experiences, the authors examine causes, experiences, and interventions related to violence in various forms of relationships including children, elders, and dating or married couples.

Among the topics covered:

  • Causal factors in aggression and violence
  • Theories of survivor coping and reactions to victimization
  • Interventions for abused women and children
  • Other forms of family violence: elder abuse, sibling abuse, and animal cruelty
  • Societal responses to abuse in the family

Dynamics of Family and Intimate Partner Violence is a crucial resource for practitioners and students in the fields of psychology and social work, vividly tying together theory and real-life case studies.
