Helping Survivors of Domestic Violence
The Effectiveness of Medical, Mental Health, and Community Services
First published in 1998, this study investigates the effectiveness of services for helping women who are survivors of domestic violence. Looking at a sample from Western and Central Oregon, it examines the utilization and perceived effectiveness of resources for survivors and, in doing so, it systematically assesses the efficacy of community and professional services.
This book will be of particular interest to social work students and practitioners, but will also be helpful to those studying healthcare and law.
