Yoshihama, Mieko
Social Work, v47 n4 p389-400 Oct 2002
Presents the findings of a focus group research project with battered women in Tokyo, Japan.

The article discusses implications for social work practice and research with immigrant battered women, those from Japan in particular. (Contains 49 references.) (GCP)
