This book takes into account the complex ways in which a batterer's abusive and controlling behaviours are woven into the fabric of daily life. This book is a guide for therapists, child protective workers, family and juvenile court personnel, and other human service providers in addressing the complex impact that batterers - specifically, male partners when there are children in the household - have on family functioning. New to this edition: increased focus on diversity with updates on race and culture infused throughout, including from the child's perspective, expanded discussion of parental alienation theories, increased use of tables and figures for illustrative purposes and more case examples to help practitioners see concepts in action.
