Preventing Violence in Australia free pdf This book has been written for all of those who are interested in understanding and preventing violence in Australia. Whether it occurs in the home, in the workplace, whilst out socialising or on the sports field, the personal, social, and economic costs of violence are often profound. Not only does it damage the physical and psychological health of those who are directly involved, but it also impacts adversely on many others - including witnesses, family and friends, and those law enforcement and health professionals who are expected to respond. And yet, there have been few previous attempts to draw together the various disciplinary and professional perspectives on how we might approach the task of preventing violence in Australia. This book has been written by experts in violence prevention, whether they be forensic, clinical and developmental psychologists, criminologists and sociologists, social workers, or specialists in public policy, law, and education. They tell us how they understand violence and about those prevention strategies that they know to be effective.
