Description

This book takes a multi-agency approach to domestic violence and looks at a large range of issues that impact on those working in the health and social care field. It begins with identification of situations where abuse may occur, including intimate partner violence, child and adolescent abuse, same-sex violence, and elderly abuse. The book considers the commonalities for survivors of abuse - such as the right to feel safe and protected from violence - and evaluates how health and social care professionals can work towards a positive outcome for all of the individuals involved. The book is divided into four parts, Recognition, Reaction, Involvement and Outcome and includes chapters on: Sexual Coercion and Domestic Violence Abuse and the Elderly Treatment and Alcohol Multi-Disciplinary Working Relationship Conflict and Abuse Outcomes Domestic Violence is a key reference resource for students and professionals across a wide range of health and social care occupations.Contributors: Georgia Anetzberger, Michael Kimmel, Jacquelyn C.
