The consequences of family violence are equally com­ plex and divergent. Victims of mistreatment can display a variety of physical injuries and psychological disturbances. No single psychiatric syndrome or symptom constellation has been consistently implicated in any form of family mistreatment. The perpetrators of family violence are equally heterogeneous in their clinical presentations.

Robert T. Ammerman Michel Hersen. Preface The past 25 years have seen the emergence of family violence as one of the most critical problems facing society. The alarming incidence figures of abuse and neglect directed toward family members justify this attention. For clinicians, intrafamilial violence represents a formidable challenge with respect to assessment and treatment. The etiology of abuse and neglect is multidetermined. There are numerous pathways in the development of family violence, and these interact and converge in a nonlinear fashion. The consequences of family violence are equally complex and divergent.

This guide presents the current status of treatment approaches for families affected by physical or psychological abuse or by neglect. Each chapter, written by a specialist on the topic, critically examines the features of a particular type of family violence, the interventions developed to remedy or prevent maltreatment, and possible future directions of research. Chapters fall into five sections, covering commonly encountered clinical issues, treatment of individual victims, treatment programs for perpetrators, preventative programs addressing family violence, and recommendations for future research priorities.
