This collection is a study of family violence, based on papers from the 4th International Family Violence Research Conference. The contributors call for a collaborative approach to the study of family violence and examine theory, methodology, assessment, interventions and ethical concerns related to both child and wife abuse. The issues that emerge include: the need for change in both victim and batterer behaviour and in the support provided; the existence of wide variations in the forms, types and consequences of abuse; the need for greater sensitivity to those affected as a widening array of expertise is brought to bear.
