Empowering Survivors of Abuse
Health Care for Battered Women and Their Children

Edited by:


September 1998 | 344 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
How can the health-care system be transformed from a site of further victimization to a place of sanctuary and empowerment for battered women and their children? This excellent compilation provides nurses, physicians, social workers and public health professionals with the skills needed to effectively intervene in cases of domestic violence.

The volume contains original research together with clinical, policy and educational applications to give readers an understanding of abused women's experiences.
