Family Violence in the United States
Defining, Understanding, and Combating Abuse

Second Edition


© 2013 | 600 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Rich in scholarly references and case materials, Family Violence in the United States: Defining, Understanding, and Combating Abuse, Second Edition by Denise A. Hines and Kathleen Malley-Morrison is a thought-provoking book that encourages students to question assumptions, evaluate information, formulate hypotheses, and design solutions to problems of family violence in the United States. Using an ecological framework, the authors provide an informative discussion of not only of the most well-recognized forms of maltreatment in families, but also of less understood and more controversial issues such as husband abuse, parent abuse, and gay/lesbian abuse. It reviews and evaluates major efforts at intervention and prevention.
