Family Violence Across the Lifespan, Third edition, will continue in the same spirit of previous editions of providing the most comprehensive and research-based text on family violence. The book will be updated to provide state-of-the-art information that helps students achieve a deeper understanding of methodology, etiology, prevalence, treatment, and prevention of family violence.

Research from experts in the fields of psychology, sociology, criminology, and social welfare is woven together to provide broad coverage of current viewpoints and debates within the field. Focusing on accessibility this new edition will include new summaries, visual enhancements and new content, while continuing to provide the most comprehensive and research-based text on family violence.

"I think that the authors do a tremendous job of integrating findings from a very large body of research and present their analysis in a reader-friendly way. The text is particularly strong in orienting the reader to the research issues, including the current state of knowledge in the area... I have found the text to be very well done and extremely useful in providing students with an introduction to the very broad field of family violence. I have recommended the text to colleagues and students. I applaud the authors for this work and thank them for creating such a comprehensive text." (Diane Hiebert-Murphy)

"This book includes an impressive overview of different types of violence and organizes a large amount of research material to make it accessible to the upper-level undergraduate. Students will easily follow the organization of topics, themes and questions, and long chapters include several intermediary summaries, which is good. (Jean Giles-Sims)

"With noteworthy reliance on a myriad of behavioral science sources, Barnett et al. explore the following: research methodology, assessment, and theories; child physical and sexual abuse; child neglect and psychological maltreatment; key issues in child maltreatment; dating violence, stalking, and sexual assault; intimate partner violence; and abuse of older adults and people with disabilities. There are appendixes for resources and violence incidence estimates. The quality of this book makes it potentially useful for undergraduate and graduate courses in all of the mental health disciplines. Those who are already working in domestic violence will be familiar with much of the substance, but the material is up to date and should help the experienced practitioner gain cutting-edge knowledge and refine skills." (John T. Firsching, Ph.D. PsycCRITIQUES)

Fantastic textbook March 20, 2011
This textbook really helps cover all bases with regards to family violence. It lays out the information in an easy to understand format. This is a textbook that I need for one of my course for a degree that I am reading in Child and Family Studies. Unlike many other textbooks, this book is worth reading. It is full of very current and updated information and covers a broad spectrum of family violence.
