Summary
Empowering Survivors of Abuse provides nurses, physicians, social workers, and public health professionals with the skills needed to effectively intervene in cases of domestic violence. This volume contains compilation of original research along with clinical, policy, and educational applications to guide the reader toward an understanding of abused women's experiences. Strategies for violence prevention, early identification, clinical interventions, and policy reformation are vital topics covered by contributors who are directly involved, on a daily basis, with victims of interpersonal violence. An invaluable addition to the scholarly-based, practical literature, Empowering Survivors of Abuse is relevant to a variety of readers in the fields of nursing, mental health, criminal justice, and social work. This book is also a must have for shelter and system advocates, policymakers, and health planners, as well as advanced students in these areas
