Death by domestic violence : preventing the murders and murder-suicides by Katherine S Van Wormer( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Each year, about 33 percent of all women and 3 percent of all men murdered in the United States, are killed by a so-called intimate, a spouse, partner, or lover. Nationwide, murder by an intimate is the number one cause of death for pregnant women. And murder by an intimate is not just an American problem. A European task force recently found domestic violence accounts for 25 percent of all homicides in London, and 35 percent across England and Wales. In this timely book, van Wormer and Roberts describe the problem, and what they have seen and heard on the front lines with both women and men who have escaped domestic violence that was escalating toward deadly levels. The text examines not only the psychology of the batterer but of domestic murder, and domestic murder-suicide. Drawn from the experience and insights of these two widely-known social workers, the text includes a safety plan for those at risk and a chapter providing narratives of women in prison for killing their abusive husband or partner. Drawing on the experience and insights of these two widely-known social workers, Death by Domestic Violence separates domestic violence myths and facts, explains the traumatic bonding that occurs between batterer and victim, and details how one facet of the solution could be school-based interventions and education. The book culminates with recommendations for further reduction of harm and a safety plan for those at risk

Ending intimate abuse : practical guidance and survival strategies by Albert R Roberts( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book to examine domestic violence in terms of a continuum of five distinct categories or levels of woman battering. This book, based on 501 in-depth qualitative interviews, places emphasis on how to recognize the warning signs of a dangerous relationship and urges women who have been battered in a dating, cohabiting, or marital relationship to end it quickly. This very practical and comprehensive study, which took more than seven years to complete, includes a step by step safety protocol and survival guidelines. The primary advantage of this new classification system is that professional counsellors, social works, criminal justice professionals, and advocates will be better prepared with diagnostic indicators, risk factors, legal remedies, and ways to assess severity and potential lethality of abusive incidents. Detailed case histories are provided of formerly battered women of varying ages and backgrounds.; "Ending Intimate Abuse" examines critical incidents in childhood and adolescence, the first and worst battering incidents, crises precipitants and traumatic events, and the turning points that led to women breaking off with their abusive boyfriends or husbands permanently. The authors are a husband (professor and researcher) and wife (women's health advocate) team who firmly believe that this book is designed to prepare professionals, parents, and concerned young women to understand the often complicated dynamics that differentiate the women who end the relationship soon after being battered from the women who stay. The book includes a national directory of domestic violence hotlines and intervention programs and a detailed glossary of key terms. It also includes several chapters with empirically based date rape prevention guidelines as well as the latest methods for improving police and court responses on the college campus and in the community

Over the past two decades, violent crime has become one of the most serious domestic problems in the United States.
