Social Work and Family Violence
Theories, Assessment, and Intervention
Having the knowledge and skills to competently provide intervention with families regardless of the type of violence they are experiencing (child abuse, domestic violence, or elder abuse) can be a daunting task. This book is intended to assist social work students in graduate or undergraduate courses to better understand the theories and practical issues surrounding family violence.
Social Worker and Family Violence is innovative by virtue of its breadth and depth of information and insight specifically concerning family violence. The book is also comprehensive, including investigatory procedures of protective services workers, risk assessments used in investigations, specific questions for approaching victims and perpetrators, and the ethical dilemmas of mandated reporting.
