Beschreibung

After centuries of being considered a private matter in most societies, violence and its profound effect on the physical health, mental health, and social well-being of victims and their families, as well as on the assailants themselves, has started to take centre stage as a public issue of worldwide concern.Health and social service providers are in pivotal positions to provide preventive and restorative services to those affected by violent and abusive behaviour. This comprehensive textbook presents theoretical background and practical strategies for doing so, providing a solid knowledge base for good practice in this area. It emphasizes the interdisciplinary aspects of violence and victim/survivor care and addresses violence over the lifespan, covering:child sexual and physical abusesexual assault of adultsbattering and emotional abuse of intimate partnerselder abuseperpetrators of violence and abuseviolence in learning and work environmentsvicarious trauma and self-careinterconnections between various forms of violence, including socially approved violence in the media and in war.This text is an essential resource for qualified practitioners wanting to learn more about this area and for students starting out in health and social care. Each chapter includes case studies and thinking points, and suggestions for application in practice settings. A companion website provides materials for students and educators, enabling the inclusion of violence issues in an already busy curriculum.Lee Ann Hoff is a nurse-anthropologist and crisis specialist.
