Tackling Domestic Violence: Theories, Policies and Practice

by Lynne Harne and Jill Radford - £29.67  Open University Press (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780335212484 | ISBN 10: 0335212484

This accessible text takes a multi-disciplinary approach to exploring issues surrounding domestic violence. It draws on contemporary research findings, policy developments, innovative practice and case studies to explore new directions in professional and voluntary sector responses to domestic violence.
 
Centred on the United Kingdom, but located in a context of global change, the book discusses and critically evaluates new criminal justice and multi-agency initiatives such as domestic violence courts and risk assessment conferences, as well as assessing how far these initiatives improve the safety of women and children.
 
Harne and Radford aim to disseminate ideas about best practice in relation to dealing with this sensitive and controversial issue. They use real-life case studies from professionals, including the police, health services and Women's Aid, and are inclusive of the experiences of a wide range of survivors, in order to enable an understanding of the need for appropriate responses, depending on different survivor needs.
 
Tackling Domestic Violence proves an informed background for professionals in the police, probation, health and social care services, the legal system and voluntary sector with a remit to respond to domestic violence. It is also highly relevant to those undertaking courses on domestic violenc at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
