Family Violence in a Cultural Perspective

Defining, Understanding, and Combating Abuse

Kathleen M. Malley-Morrison,

Family Violence in a Cultural Perspective: Defining, Understanding, and Combating Abuse
 
 

Family Violence in a Cultural Perspective focuses on family violence from four major ethnic populations of the United States: Native American Indian, African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Asian American. Authors Kathleen Malley-Morrison and Denise A. Hines examine violence in these communities and take an ecological approach to its incidences, correlations, and consequences. The information and cases in the book are organized within a cognitive-affective-ecological framework, allowing readers to consider the many causes of family violence. The book looks at the different types of family violence including child, spousal, and elder abuse and addresses the broader historical and environmental forces contributing to violence within different communities.
