Gil identifies the conditions that are often present when child abuse occurs and outlines the protective factors that can counteract an individual's tendency toward child maltreatment. Without absolving the full responsibility of the offender, the author recommends an approach to treatment that advances intervention for all family members who may inadvertently contribute to the maintenance of problem behaviors in families through acts of omission or commission.Gil discusses how the treatment of child abuse differs from generic treatment in a number of important ways. She emphasizes the tremendous responsiblity in trying to alter harmful and potentially lethal behaviors, while making efforts to preserve the family when appropriate, without compromising children's safety. She stresses the necessity for systemic interventions for everyone: abusers, abused, and nonabused family members.Systemic Treatment of Families Who Abuse is an invaluable guide written for professionals to enhance their clinical skills when working with families in which child abuse has occurred.
