Summary "This book is designed to provide readers with a comprehensive understanding of the prevalence, causes, and treatment of psychological and physical aggression in intimate relationships. The chapters are authored by well-regarded researchers who specialize in these topics. Each chapter contains a synthesis of cutting-edge empirical evidence along with a roadmap for applying these findings in clinical settings. In many cases, the authors present significant new insights into the partner aggression field that challenge existing conceptualizations of how to understand and treat aggression between intimate partners. The parts are designed to examine partner aggression from a broad and multifaceted perspective with the goal of answering three questions: How common is partner aggression? Why does it occur? How can it be prevented and treated? This book is intended for use in a range of academic, clinical, and research contexts. It can serve as a useful text for a variety of general courses in psychology, sociology, and family studies, as well as advanced courses in clinical psychology, social work, family counseling, and marital and family therapy. Because each chapter specifically addresses the clinical implications of a given topic, clinicians working with couples and families will find this book accessible. Finally, the state-of-the-art empirical focus and implications for future research make this an important compendium for researchers in the family violence field"--Introduction.
