This book is designed to give family therapists and other helping professionals an introduction to the major types of family violence, an overview of the impact of violence on the family, and a discussion of treatment approaches for professionals to use when working with individuals and families. The book is divided into two main sections: intrafamilial violence (violence that occurs between family members) and extrafamilial violence (violence that is inflicted on a family member from someone outside the family). The authors utilize a broad ecological view to explore the different types of violence that family members may experience. In addition to the ecological perspective, several important themes are evident throughout the book: making violence the primary focus of therapy, emphasizing relationships in the healing process, empowering survivors of violence, and focusing on resiliency and strength. Treatment issues and approaches that can be used by all helping professionals are featured. Although much of the content was gleaned from existing research, each chapter contributes new ideas and new strategies for dealing with the complicated problems that violence creates.
