Abstract:

"This textbook equips social workers and human services practitioners with the knowledge and skills to work effectively with both the victims and perpetrators of domestic violence. Written to address the needs of the social work and human services student learner, the book covers a range of domestic violence issues that will prepare the student for practice. With an underlying structural feminist conceptual framework that works towards empowering service users whilst challenging the structures that perpetuate violence, Working with Domestic Violence includes: - 18 chapters covering the broad spectrum of issues that arise from working with domestic violence - A clear practice framework for applying theoretical knowledge when working with individuals and families in domestic violence contexts - Practice tips, key facts, case examples, activities and reflective questions designed to enhance the reader's engagement with the ideas, debates and practice challenges introduced in the text - An extensive index and glossary to support student understanding of the material - A user-friendly and engaging style that will find application as an entire course book as well as for students or lecturers interested in selecting individual chapters for certain modules Working with Domestic Violence is essential reading for students undertaking undergraduate and postgraduate coursework courses in social work and human services, and those completing a postgraduate counselling qualification. The book will also be a valuable resource for students of community work, youth work, education, nursing and other allied health courses, community services, disability and welfare studies"--
