• Domestic violence: A multi-professional approach for healthcare practitioners

      Keeling, June J.; Mason, Tom; University of Chester (Open University Press, 2008-05-01)
      This book takes a multi-agency approach to domestic violence and looks at a large range of issues that impact on those working in the health and social care fields. It begins with identification of situations where abuse may occur, including intimate partner violence, child and adolescent abuse, same-sex violence and elderly abuse. The book considers the commonalities for survivors of abuse - such as the right to feel safe and protected from violence - and evaluates how health and social care professionals can work towards a positive outcome for all of the individuals involved.
