Competing research results have led to bitter debates on family violence. In this comprehensive volume, outstanding researchers and practitioners discuss the principal current controversies in the field. Areas explored include: child abuse and neglect; partner abuse; date and acquaintance rape; abuse of the elderly; and alcohol abuse.
The thoughtful, often heated, contributions - presented in a debate format - cover such issues as: whether prevention programmes affect rates of child sexual abuse; whether alcohol and drug use are causes of family violence; and whether child abuse is transmitted from generation to generation. The volume highlights the implications for research and policy directions in the family violence field.
