Reviews

"Adolescent Violence in the Home provides a compelling and comprehensive overview of the challenges inherent in addressing abuse by youth. Based on decades of hands-on, extraordinary work, Routt and Anderson offer specific intervention models proven to be highly effective. This enormously rich book will guide families and practitioners who seek to understand and help troubled, violent youth." -Sarah Buel, clinical professor of law at Arizona State University's Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law and domestic violence survivor "This is an excellent and original book that should be essential reading for anyone who wants to understand more about this form of family violence. Routt and Anderson are world-leading authorities on adolescent violence in the home, having co-developed the longest running and most established specific program. Here they share the depth and breadth of their experience, knowledge, and understanding to provide an outstanding text that offers powerful insights into how the problem might best be understood and addressed. Highly recommended for practitioners, policy makers, and academic audiences." -Rachel Condry, associate professor of criminology at the University of Oxford "This book is an important and highly readable addition to the growing library of work on adolescent violence in the home. I would recommend it to anyone interested in developing their knowledge further, whether as an academic or a practitioner in the field." -Helen Bonnick, Holes in the Wall blog
