Using an ecological framework, the authors engage readers in an informative discussion on the most well recognized forms of maltreatment in families, as well as on less understood and more controversial forms, such as maltreatment of male partners, of parents, and within LGBT relationships. Rich in useful scholarly references and practical case materials, the book also reviews and evaluates major efforts at intervention and prevention." --
