Intimate Violence in Families
Intimate Violence in Families has been thoroughly revised and updated in its third edition. Drawing on the latest research, this book dismantles many of the conventional myths hindering our understanding of family violence. Through an exploration of some of the major controversies in the field, Richard Gelles discusses various theories of intimate violence and the contributing social factors. This third edition includes a substantial expansion of material on hidden victims of familial violence-siblings, parents, and the elderly-as well as an examination of violence between gay and lesbian couples. While the first two editions of Intimate Violence in Families focused on physical abuse, here Gelles also explores neglect and emotional and psychological abuse, offering a much broader look at the full spectrum of familial abuse. Breaking important new ground, Gelles carefully examines what we know about intervention and treatment program effectiveness, with special attention to intensive family preservation programs and men's treatment programs. A major text for use in coursework on interpersonal violence, family violence, psychology, counseling, social work, and special issues in gender studies and sociology, Intimate Violence in Families, Third Edition will also provide essential information to professionals working in those areas.
