Summary
"[This book offers] clinical and social psychological theory and research, as well as prevention and intervention techniques, with the purpose of understanding and ultimately ending gender-based violence. The authors address several forms of violence, including rape, intimate partner violence, stalking and sexual harassment ... Although most men do not perpetrate violence against women, such violence is not a 'women's' issue; it will take the strength and courage of both women and men to solve this human issue. [This book] explores the silent epidemic of men's violence against women, the grave consequences of this violence on both individuals and society, and the historical and current foundations that serve to both criminalize and tolerate men's violence against women ... The final part of the book contains descriptions of model violence prevention approaches and techniques for implementing these programs ..."--Book jacket
