Case vignettes effectively illustrate these events, and the victims' experiences and perceptions of the abuse. Chapters delineate: the reasons why various types of abuse continue to occur; how different types of violent behavior may be treated; and suggestions for prevention. In addition, the author provides definitions of terms, summaries, valuable references and additional suggested readings.
