Family Violence From a Global Perspective
A Strengths-Based Approach

The only book in the field with a global focus on family violence



© 2014 | 328 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Family Violence From a Global Perspective draws on the expertise of authors from 21 countries to tell the story of domestic violence in their country, and will include a personal case study of someone who has experienced domestic violence. The editors incorporate a strengths-based perspective, which includes individual, relationship, community, and societal strengths. The book blends academic, professional, and victims' expertise to determine these strengths and analyze how they can translate into greater safety for victims and increased accountability for perpetrators, including improved policy formation and research.
Sylvia M. Asay, John DeFrain, Marcee Metzger, Bob Moyer
