About this title: Since its initial publication, this far-reaching reference has provided professionals and victims of abuse with guidance on everything from indicators of an abusive relationship to domestic violence legislation, from anti-burnout tips for helpers to advice on leaving an abusive partner. This updated edition addresses new research and programs, adding information on date rape drugs, cyber-stalking, pregnancy and domestic violence, and more. Current controversial social and legal issues are also covered, and two new chapters devote attention to domestic violence in the military and to the challenging -- and rewarding -- role of those who work with battered women and their children.
