THANK YOU SO MUCH ALYCE LAVIOLETTE! It’s so reassuring to know that I can stab someone 20 times, shoot them in the head, drag their body around their house a bit and you will testify on my behalf at my criminal trial with your expertise! I don’t have to worry that...

This new edition includes a wealth of new material and case examples, and retained sections have been carefully rewritten to reflect contemporary thinking. It continues to provide understanding and empathy regarding this complex issue and presents an integrated learning theory explanation of the conditioning that culminates in wife abuse, in the resulting state of the victim, and in the decision to stay with an abuser."--BOOK JACKET."
