Violence in Intimate Relationships

Ximena B. Arriaga,

Violence in Intimate Relationships

About the eBook

  • What are the roots of violence between spouses?
  • What do we know about the precursors of wife battering?
  • Who are the victims of domestic abuse?

This book discusses causes and precursors of violence, exploring the psychological characteristics of perpetrators of violence, and describing and evaluating potential responses to it. Each chapter contributes to the reader′s understanding of violence in intimate relationships. Part I establishes the "what" and the "who" of violence; Part II examines the interpersonal and situational context that may contribute to violent interaction, or the "how" and "why" that underlie violent interactions; and Part III provides an account of what happens to victims as a result of physical and psychological abuse and how relationships change following violent interactions. The book provides an up-to-date supplemental textbook for courses on a variety of disciplines that deal with violence between spouses and intimate spouses.
