Assessment of Family Violence: A Clinical and Legal Sourcebook

Second Edition

Almost every mental health professional is faced with evaluating individuals and families involved in domestic violence, including child abuse and neglect, incest, battering, elder abuse, and psychological abuse. This valuable resource is the only book exclusively devoted to the assessment of all types of family violence and explains how to determine if family violence is occurring. Through the work and contributions of preeminent researchers and practitioners, the Second Edition includes:

  • State-of-the-art, empirically driven approaches to the clinical evaluation of violence involving children and adults
  • Specific assessment measures to assess future risk and specialized issues, such as children who have witnessed marital violence and adult incest survivors
  • Case examples and a new chapter on child neglect
  • Current issues in the assessment of family violence, child maltreatment, and couples violence
  • Assessment of elder abuse, woman battering, and extrafamilial child sexual abuse.

Critical Acclaim for the First Edition

"A rare combination of excellent writing and editing, up-to-date and carefully presented reviews of the knowledge base, and practical and useful information about treatment and prevention. Of the many books that have been published in the last few years on family violence, this is one of the most valuable." —Child Abuse and Neglect.

"This book will come as a necessary and welcome addition to the libraries of therapists from different theoretical orientations and with differing levels of experience who encounter family violence in their practice." —Contemporary Psychology.
