Having the knowledge and skills to competently provide intervention with families regardless of the type of violence they are experiencing (child abuse, domestic violence, or elder abuse) can be a daunting task. This book is intended to assist social work students in graduate or undergraduate courses to better understand the theories and practical issues surrounding family violence. "A Social Worker's Guide to Family Violence" is innovative by virtue of its breadth and depth of information and insight specifically concerning family violence. The book is also comprehensive, including investigatory procedures of protective services workers, risk assessments used in investigations, specific questions for approaching victims and perpetrators, and the ethical dilemmas of mandated reporting.

Joan McClennen, PhD, is a full professor at Missouri State University. Prior to assuming her academic career, Dr. McClennen held counseling and administration positions, for two decades, in areas of child abuse, mental health, and children's services. Following a five-year study, she co-edited A Professional's Guide to Understanding Gay and Lesbian Domestic Violence: Understanding Practice Interventions. She is presently co-authoring Human Kinetics Manual. Her writing has appeared in Journal of Interpersonal Violence, Journal of Gay &Social Services, Family Therapy, College Student Journal, and Research on Social Work Practice.
