SUMMARY

Recent estimates indicate that as many as 8.7 million women are beaten in their homes each year. This is an alarming national statistic, but there is hope. This book examines both social work and criminal justice professional's methods of intervention on behalf of battered women escaping from violent relationships. Helping Battered Women fills a major gap in the literature on the subject. The author provides the reader with the most current, comprehensive, empirically-based, and realistic overview of policy and intervention methods of women escaping from violent relationships. This interdisciplinary volume integrates a rich diversity of perspectives by internationally recognized professors and scholars in the fields of social work, clinical psychology, and criminal justice. The authors of each of the individual chapters tackle one of the major social problems of our times--violence against women--in a systematic and sensitive manner. The authors provide a clear and cogent argument for advocacy and social change in battered women's shelters, police precincts, state legislatures, and the nation's criminal courts.Roberts, Albert R. is the author of 'Helping Battered Women' with ISBN 9780195095869 and ISBN 0195095863.
