This training manual synthesizes the clinical and research literature on victims, offenders, and child witnesses, and uses the empirical evidence to provide generalist clinicians with manageable, concrete guidance for providing care in these cases. Each chapter begins with a summary of the issues to be covered and an outline of the specific topics to be discussed, and ends with a recap and list of questions for practitioners in training.

The authors offer expertise in forensic psychology, victimization, and substance abuse; they discuss the clinical, legal, and ethical complexities that violence against women brings to the mental health practice environment.
