About the eBook

How are we to deal with personal and social violence? Given the global reality of daily homicide, rape, torture, and war, more individuals may be considering this question than ever before.

Understanding and Dealing with Violence: A Multicultural Approach situates violence within a social, cultural, and historical context. Edited by distinguished scholars Barbara C. Wallace and Robert T. Carter, this unique volume explores historical factors, socialization influences, and the historical and contemporary dynamics between the oppressed and the oppressor. State-of-the-art research guides a diverse group of psychologists, educators, policy-makers, religious leaders, community members, victims, and perpetrators in finding viable solutions to violence.

This timely guide examines many forms of violence including

International violence from war and torture School and urban violence The rape experience of women Violence against gays, lesbians, and bisexuals Hate crimes against Blacks, Latinos, and Asians Systemic violence against people with disabilities

Understanding and Dealing with Violence: A Multicultural Approach offers a comprehensive theory of violence as a psychology of oppression, liberation, and identity development. Readers will understand how invisible violence may precede visible violence, and how the oppressed are transformed into oppressors. Blending scholarly and personal perspectives on ethnic cleansing, physical and sexual assault, terrorism, and police brutality, an inclusive group of contributors fuel hope that humanity can break the cycle of violence.

An indispensable resource for psychologists, educators, researchers, and mental health clinicians, Understanding and Dealing with Violence: A Multicultural Approach is also an ideal primer for undergraduate and graduate students in courses on violence, peace studies, and conflict resolution.
