One in four women will experience violence in the home at least once in their lives and many will be subjected to long-term violence.

This handbook not only provides a clear introduction to the theoretical debates surrounding the topic but also offers practical advice on possible interventions.
Focussing on improving the care of clients it covers: the causes and consequences of domestic violence; personal and professional issues for the practitioner; domestic violence and the law; the process of effective intervention; interventions in specific health care settings; interventions where children are involved; multi-agency approaches; education and training.
Taking an evidence-based approach to practical problems, this book will be a welcome new resource for nurses, doctors, and other health practitioners who deal with the consequences of domestice violence in their daily work. It will also be of interest to police, legal services, and those working in social services and voluntary organisations.
