After centuries of being considered a private matter in most
societies, violence and its profound effect on the physical health,
mental health, and social well-being of victims and their families,
as well as on the assailants themselves, has started to take centre
stage as a public issue of worldwide concern. Health and social
service providers are in pivotal positions to provide preventive
and restorative services to those affected by violent and abusive
behaviour. This comprehensive textbook presents theoretical
background and practical strategies for doing so, providing a solid
knowledge base for good practice in this area. It emphasizes the
interdisciplinary aspects of violence and victim/survivor care and
addresses violence over the lifespan, covering: child sexual and
physical abuse sexual assault of adults battering and emotional
abuse of intimate partners elder abuse perpetrators of violence and
abuse violence in learning and work environments vicarious trauma
and self-care interconnections between various forms of violence,
including socially approved violence in the media and in war. This
text is an essential resource for qualified practitioners wanting
to learn more about this area and for students starting out in
health and social care. Each chapter includes case studies and
thinking points, and suggestions for application in practice
settings. A companion website provides materials for students and
educators, enabling the inclusion of violence issues in an already
busy curriculum. Lee Ann Hoff is a nurse-anthropologist and crisis
specialist. She has published widely and is the author of the
