Family Violence: Intervention Strategies.
Barnett, Ellen R.; And Others
Problems related to family violence are complex and multi-faceted and involve large numbers of people in this country. A number of types of violence in families are identified initially; however, the manual focuses on the concerns of battered women, or interspousal abuse. Information focuses on: (1) the nature, causes and effects of family violence; (2) identification of violent families; and (3) intervention strategies--both beginning stages and assessment, and ongoing intervention--developing and implementing a service plan. Legal issues are discussed, as are program planning, coordination and evaluation. Several exhibits and crisis assessment profiles are provided. (KMG)
