“If I was to recommend only one book for a domestic violence advocate to read in their career, it would be this one. Every person interested in domestic violence work should do themselves and the survivors they hope to help a favor by reading this and integrating the concepts presented into their advocacy. We owe a debt of gratitude to the authors of this book for providing such a clear guide on effective work with domestic violence survivors.”
“[This book] is a must read for all disciplines providing services to battered women. Survivors are not served in a vacuum, so it is imperative that system providers understand their role in keeping them safe.”
“Working with battered women often produces ethical dilemmas about what is the best course of action to take. [This book] provides a framework of women-defined advocacy that respects the rights and dignity of each woman, as well as her right to self-determination. In the analysis of risks associated with violence and abuse, the woman’s voice is once again heard and her perspective guides the process of safety planning.”
This text fit the parameters of the course.
