The comprehensive theory- and research-based guidelines provided in this text help answer the personal and professional questions therapists have as they provide competent clinical treatment to clients who have experienced family violence. It presents academic, scholarly, and statistical terms in an accessible and user-friendly way, with useful take-away points for practitioners such as clarifying contradictory findings, summarizing major research-based implications and guidelines, and addressing the unique clinical challenges faced by mental health professionals. Both professionals and students in graduate-level mental health training programs will find the presentation of information and exercises highly useful, and will appreciate the breadth of topics covered: intimate partner violence, battering, child maltreatment and adult survivors, co-occurring substance abuse, the abuse of vulnerable populations, cultural issues, prevention, and self-care. Professionals and students alike will find that, with this book, they can help their clients overcome the significant traumas and challenges they face to let their strength and resilience shine through.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This highly readable volume covers incredible breadth in a handbook for trainees and clinicians facing the pervasive problems of family violence. It provides important clinical context to understanding research findings and recommendations in family violence, particularly violence between intimate partners, that is rife with safety issues and major sequela, often overlooked in clinical practice education." - Lisa Amaya-Jackson, MD, MPH, Associate Director, UCLA-Duke National Center for Child Traumatic Stress and Center for Child & Family Health, Duke University School of Medicine, North Carolina
