Summary
"Violence against women and children is a prevalent and costly public health problem in the United States. However, medical and social sciences have been able to garner unprecedented levels of the social and political will necessary to support research on the etiology and maintenance of violence against women and children to guide development of prevention and treatment programs and strategies. Violence Against Women and Children presents state-of-the-art theoretical and empirical perspectives on the response to violence against women and children. The two volumes, Violence Against Women and Children, Volume 1: Mapping the Terrain and Violence Against Women and Children, Volume 2: Navigating Solutions, document the tremendous health and economic burden to individuals, families, communities, and society, highlighting the huge disparities related to race, class, and other marginalized dimensions. Empirically based responses of various sectors--criminal justice, health care, mental health--are represented in this book, but, most important, Violence Against Women and Children issues a strong call for innovative, interdisciplinary approaches that aim for the primary prevention of violence against women and children, adopting the public health perspective"--Foreword.
