Family Interventions in Domestic Violence
Add to cart
US$ 90.00


In this exciting new book John Hamel, author of the ground-breaking Gender-Inclusive Treatment of Intimate Partner Abuse, and Tonya Nicholls go beyond the traditional intervention theories of domestic violence practiced today

Offering alternative, unbiased and sometimes controversial views, theories, and current research, they, along with renowned contributors in the field, provide new treatment options that encompass a wide range of gender dynamics. Here are just some of the key principles covered:

  • Interventions Should Be Based on a Thorough Unbiased Assessment
  • Victim/Perpetrator Distinctions are Overstated, and Much Partner Abuse is Mutual
  • Regardless of Perpetrator Gender, Child Witnesses to Partner Abuse are Adversely Affected, and are at Risk for Perpetrating Partner Abuse as Adults

This new gender-inclusive approach to assessment and intervention provides a significant departure from traditional paradigms of domestic violence, and offers a much-needed awareness to effectively prevent violence in our communities today and for future generations.
