This text covers three separate but related areas of family violence and abuse. It enables comparisons and contrasts to be made between child, adult and elderly abuse. This book bridges the practice-theory gap with integration a cornerstone of the text. Good established practice and innovative methods are detailed. A multidisciplinary approach has been used to make this book required reading for all those who work with the problems of family violence.
