Assessment of family violence : a clinical and legal sourcebook( Book )

14 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost every clinician at some time faces the challenge of evaluating individuals and families involved in domestic violence. This invaluable sourcebook provides the kind of comprehensive understanding of epidemiological models, intervention planning, and standards of practice that will help practitioners address the causes, effects, future risks, problems, and issues that arise in a variety of family violence situations. Edited by the expert team responsible for Treatment of Family Violence and written by leading figures in the field, Assessment of Family Violence takes stock of over a decade of research and examines the strategies and measures that are vital to the effective assessment of family violence, both in terms of treatment planning and legal requirements. Assessment of Family Violence provides authoritative coverage of the assessment, clinical, and legal issues involved in dealing with family violence; epidemiology of family violence involving both children and adults; types of family violence, including child abuse and neglect, incest, wife battering, elder abuse and neglect, and psychological abuse of women; and special issues in the field, including recently recognized areas of maltreatment, such as child witnesses of marital violence, adolescent perpetrators of incest, and adult survivors of incest. Rich in descriptive material, assessment approach analyses, legal considerations, case illustrations, and invaluable practical guidelines, Assessment of Family Violence is an interdisciplinary and cross-theoretical treasury for concerned clinicians, counselors, social workers, and legal professionals
Case studies in family violence by Robert T Ammerman( Book )

21 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past 20 years have seen the emergence of family violence as one of the most critical problems facing society. The alarming incidence figures of abuse and neglect directed toward family members justify this atten­ tion. For example, over 1 million children are thought to be abused and neglected each year. Similarly, almost 2 million women are victims of wife battering each year. Annual rates of elderly mistreatment are thought to be as high as 32 per 1000 population. Accurate epidemiologi­ cal data only now are being compiled on more recently recognized forms of mistreatment, such as psychological abuse, ritualistic abuse of chil­ dren, and child witnessing of adult violence. The pervasiveness of do­ mestic mistreatment makes it a priority for clinicians and researchers alike. For clinicians, intrafamilial violence represents a formidable chal­ lenge with respect to assessment and treatment. The etiology of abuse and neglect is multidetermined. There are numerous pathways in the development of family violence, and these interact and converge in a nonlinear fashion. The consequences of family violence are equally com­ plex and divergent. Victims of mistreatment can display a variety of physical injuries and psychological disturbances. No single psychiatric syndrome or symptom constellation has been consistently implicated in any form of family mistreatment. The perpetrators of family violence are equally heterogeneous in their clinical presentations. Illustrative dys­ functions in perpetrators include skill deficits, substance abuse, mental illness, and impulse-control disorders
Children at risk : an evaluation of factors contributing to child abuse and neglect by Robert T Ammerman( Book )

13 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the past decade, a dramatic increase in research and clinical interest has risen in child abuse and neglect. This recent growth in awareness isdue at leastpartly to thealarmingstatisticsdocumentingthe incidence of child maltreatment. Almost one million children are re­ ported to be abused and neglected each year, and many experts believe that this figure underestimates the true incidence. Indeed, recentsurveys suggest that almost 1. 5 million children are the targets of domestic vio­ lence every year. A significantproportion of these children die as a func­ tion of this maltreatment, whereas theremaindersuffera variety ofshort­ and long-term deleterious medicaland psychosocial consequences. Child maltreatment is a universal problem that has precipitated a mobilization of effort from a variety of disciplines, including psychology, medicine, psychiatry, social work, sociology, and criminology. Particular attention has been directed toward the prevention and treatment of childabuse and neglect. Such endeavors require the screen­ ing of large groups in order to identify families that are at high-risk for engaging in such behavior. Delineating those characteristics that differ­ entiate high- from low-risk families and children is one of the obvious priorities for researchers and clinicians in the future. This book, there­ fore, carefully considers the status of research on risk factors of abuse and neglect in children. Adduced data undoubtedly will have practical value for subsequent intervention efforts

Handbook of child behavior therapy in the psychiatric setting( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Behavioral interventions for childhood disorders are, at last, gaining wide acceptance among child psychiatrists and pediatricians. Proven to be a relatively quick and effective method of treatment for everything from ADHD and conduct disturbances to separation anxiety and obsessive/compulsive disorders, behavioral therapy is rapidly becoming a preferred intervention strategy, both in inpatient and outpatient environments. Yet, despite their growing enthusiasm for behavioral techniques, practitioners are hard pressed to find useful guides and references targeted specifically for behavioral interventions with children in a psychiatric setting. This book was intended to fill that void."--Jacket
