Abuse in the Family: An Introduction

Abuse in the Family: An Introduction Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this practical, eye-opening book, author Alan Kemp uses an ecological approach to examine the widespread social problem of family maltreatment. By examining the complex relationships that exist on a macro, meso, and micro level, students will be better prepared to make a difference in a world confronted by this colossal and disheartening social problem and to answer the following questions: "Why does family maltreatment occur?," "What do its victims experience?," "How do they recover?," "What can we do to help them?," "How can we understand the perpetrators?," and "How might we reduce or prevent family abuse?"

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 308-325) and index.

About the Author

Alan Kemp is the Director of Social Services at Pierce College, in Tacoma, Washington.
