"This volume makes a signal contribution to understanding and treating couples' abuse. The editors and contributors expand the models of abusive relationships to include the special concerns of gay and lesbian couples, mutually violent partners, abusive women, and others. Based on a special issue of the respected journal Violence and Victims, the book shatters myths surrounding domestic violence and sheds new light on a complex social problem. This volume will be a resource for counselors, therapists, and social workers concerned with domestic violence, as well as for students and educators in the field."
