Cruel But Not Unusual PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Cruel But Not Unusual free pdf Violence in families and intimate relationships affects a significant proportion of the population--from very young children to the elderly--with far-reaching and often devastating consequences. Cruel but Not Unusual draws on the expertise of scholars and practitioners to present readers with the latest research and thinking about the history, conditions, and impact of violence in these contexts. For this new edition, chapters have been updated to reflect changes in data and legislation. New chapters include an examination of trauma from a neurobiological perspective- a critical analysis of the "gender symmetry debate," a debate that questions the gendered nature of intimate violence- and an essay on the history and evolution of the women's movement dedicated to addressing violence against women, which advances theoretical developments that remind readers of the breadth of inclusivity that should be at the heart of working in this field.

She currently consults to and evaluates programs delivering services to survivors and their children, and for fathers who expose their children to intimate partner violence.

Previously, Cathy oversaw publication of 40 reports on children's issues and worked extensively with children, youth, and adults affected by child abuse and intimate violence, conducting research and developing innovative support and clinical services.
