It does a good job of showing how devastating and tragic family violence really is, as well as showing the emotional and physical trauma suffered by the victims' - Family Violence BulletinRichard J Gelles' bestselling volume has been thoroughly updated and revised to provide this comprehensive new edition. Armed with the latest research in the field, Intimate Violence in Families explodes many of the conventional myths and controversies hindering understanding of family violence, and replaces them with the most current knowledge available.While focusing largely on physical abuse, the book also examines data on sexual abuse, emotional and psychological abuse, neglect and other forms of intimate victimization.
