Book Description :

This Fourth Edition of Intimate Violence and Abuse in Families updates a best-selling core text in the field of intimate violence and child maltreatment. New features include: a "Global Perspectives" call-out box for each of the chapters that explore an aspect of research, policy, and practice globally or in another nation; and a separate chapter that examines forms of intimate partner violence other than male-to-female. Bidirectional intimate partner violence and female-to-male violence remain contentious topics in the field of intimate partner violence and rarely receive extensive coverage in books or texts; Chapter 7 includes a new examination of brain and behavior research and theory as it can be applied to intimate partner violence. Further, Chapter 8 adds a much-expanded examination of the most important federal policies pertaining to child welfare and child maltreatment. The inclusion of all forms of relationship and intimate violence continues to be a distinctive feature of the book, which is a must-have for both undergraduate and graduate students studying social work, family studies, criminology, nursing, sociology, and/or psychology.

Book Description :

In line with the relevant scenarios and laws in the modern society, domestic abuse refers to a pattern of foul behavior in a relationship. The perpetrators of these actions perceive it as effective approaches of attaining and maintaining control over their intimate partners. The behaviors categorized under this social vice can be emotional, sexual, psychological, or economic threats or actions. The physical form of domestic abuse includes pulling of hair, grabbing, shoving, slapping, hitting, biting, or punching one's spouse. This type of behavior also entails forcing one to use drugs or alcohol or denying him or her medical care. Moreover, the common forms of sexual abuse comprise treating someone in a sexually belittling manner, marital rape, forcing a spouse to engage in sexual intercourse after the occurrence of physical violence, or attacking one's sexual organs. Similarly, emotional abuse involves undermining a person's self-esteem through constant criticism, damaging the existing relations with his or her family members, name-calling, or diminishing their mental capabilities. Economic abuse is also a common form of domestic violence in the modern society. In an attempt to ensure that their partners are financially dependent on them, abusive spouses withhold their victims' access to finances or forbid them to seek employment or attend an institution that may result in economic empowerment. Furthermore, the common forms of psychological abuse in intimate relationships include threatening to physically harm self, spouse, children, or the victim's friends or family members, instilling fear through intimidation, forcefully isolating one's partner from his or her allies, relatives, occupation, or school. Destroying a person's property and killing pets with the main intent of causing fear is also a psychological version of domestic abuse. There is a need to shine a spotlight on domestic violence because it must stop.

Book Description :

Violence against women is an enduring problem around the globe, yet very few books look at the full range of men’s violences against women – perpetrated in relationships, in the family, in public spaces, and in institutions. While books that look at different types of violence, such as domestic violence, ‘honour’ based violence and rape in isolation are useful for depth, it is only by looking across these different spheres that the true extent of men’s violences against women becomes clear. This book usefully covers all of the main forms of violence against women, looking at it from a research, policy, and practice perspective. Including discussion of fifteen different types of violence against women, this book is original in offering an introduction to such a broad range of topics, and for including chapters on violences that have rarely been written about, as well as those that are more commonly discussed and those that have been sidelined in recent years. By bringing together work on violence against women committed by partners, family members, strangers, acquaintances, institutions and businesses, this book widens the lens through which we view men’s violences against women. Violence against Women is essential reading for criminologists and sociologists who want to be up to date with cutting-edge knowledge on this topic. It is also an invaluable text for those training to enter or become qualified in the specialist domestic and sexual violence sector.

Strengthening families of different varieties and ending abuse in the myriad of forms through which it surfaces is God's way of bringing peace and safety to Christian homes across the world. We challenge congregations, their leaders, and the men, women, and youth who faithfully support them to consider their personal role in bringing this vision--inspired by the Scriptures--into reality. Together our voices can be strong. We are united in our belief that every home should be a safe home, every home a shelter from the storms of life, every home a place where we are supported, treated with respect and dignity, and every home a place where men and women are encouraged to be all they can be. It is a tall order. It is a dream to guide our personal conduct and to measure our congregational and community life. We are far from reaching this goal--but toward it we strive.

Book Description :

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.
