I rented this textbook for a class that I was taking called family violence and abuse. I really found this book helpful and full of information. This textbook is a wonderful source of information about all types of domestic abuse. The extensive coverage on the many forms of child abuse is an excellent source of information for all careers, especially social workers, teachers, school psychologists, and future or current parents.
