Domestic Violence

Promotional Information

In the field of domestic violence, our understanding and approaches to respond to victims from diverse groups has been very narrow. Because we understand that all women are affected by domestic violence, some interpret this to mean that the same solutions should apply to everyone. This book helps the reader consider that to be effective and responsive to the diversity of battered women requires that we understand their reality, social context, definition of help, and the proper technology for response. These authors remind us that one size does not fit all-that helping can be limited when the helper does not strive to understand the realities of those they serve and expand on the technologies that are culturally congruent with the population. -- Oliver J. Williams, School of Social Work, University of Minnesota, and executive director of the Institute on Domestic Violence in the African American Community
