Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book is a significant scholarly and practical contribution to the field of family violence. It is particularly relevant in its acknowledgment that men (as well as women) are frequent and serious victims of partner abuse."

- Martin Fiebert, PhD Professor of Psychology

"John Hamel take the discussion of family violence "up a notch" by going beyond yet another convincing argument for the bilterality of partner abuse. Indeed, "Gender-Inclusive Treatment of Intimate Partner Abuse" provides well thought out and concrete treatment options that consider the reality of men and women who experience violence in their intimate relationships. Clearly, this book is evidence that society is finally ready to move forward in seeking more inclusive remedies to a very serious social problem." - Reena Sommer, Ph.D.

"An outstanding guide to understanding the dynamics of domestic violence. One of the first and most comprehensive applications of the use of clinical data in understanding that domestic violence frequently is not always gender specific. My experiences in field research resulted in hypotheses of mutual abuse and family involvement in conflict have subsequently been supported by the outstanding research of Mr. Hamel. Domestic violence is a family problem---not a male problem. This research is long overdue. I recommend this book as a "must read" for anyone interested in understanding domestic violence and "everyone" working as a family counselor." - Dr. William A. Stacey, Professor (recently retired), University of Texas at Arlington; Author, THE FAMILY SECRET: Domestic Violence in America, Beacon Press, 1983; VIOLENT MEN, VIOLENT COUPLES, Lexington Books, D.C. Heath and Company, 1987; VIOLENT COUPLES, Praeger, 1994

"This ground-breaking new book is a must-read for every practitioner, researcher, and student interested in partner abuse. The book presents a completely new approach to domestic violence: the gender-inclusive approach. Sound research has documented that both sexes play important roles in the causes and treatment of partner abuse, and this exciting book shows how. This book leads the way to making domestic-violence reduction a realistic goal, at last! This is the best book I have read on the topic of domestic violence treatment: combines a sound evidence base with creative clinical practice."

- Terrie Moffitt, PhD, Professor of Psychology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and at the Institute of Psychiatry, London, UK.

From the Back Cover

"

This breakthrough handbook for mental health professionals and educators offers practical, hands-on information for conducting assessments and providing treatments that take the entire family system into account.

Rich with research that shows women are abusive within relationships at rates comparable to men, the book eschews the field's reliance on traditional domestic violence theory and treatment, which favors violence interventions for men and victim services for women and ignores the dynamics of the majority of violent relationships. Thus, the author identifies and measures protocols that help practitioners make accurate assessments for both men and women and then carefully selects the treatment modality and curricula for group, couples, and/or individual work that will help clients break their particular cycle of violence while ensuring victim safety.

Format: Paperback
John Hamel's new book, on gender inclusive treatment of domestic violence, is the most honest and refreshing book I have ever come across. What I most like about John's book is that he doesn't try to be politically correct, but simply shares the facts in a completely honest manner. I especially like the fact that he seriously addresses the need for treating the male "victim" and the female "perpetrator" of domestic violence, which is often minimized by those in the field. I feel that we are finally entering into the 21st century on this topic with John's work. A must read for every domestic violence treatment worker!!

John Hamel has filled a much needed void in gender abuse understanding. Finally a book that looks at both sexes thru overwhelming research. Great book for the assestment and treatment of partner abuse. There are so many helpful "tools" including marital happiness scale , abuse lethality levels, controlling tactics, anger styles, etc. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
At long last, a comprehensive domestiv violence manual that departs from the traiditonal patriarchal paradigm, offering instead a gneder-inclusive, systems approach to domestic violence. John Hamel's book views intimate partner avuse as more than a problem of individual psychopathology, but also as a relationship problem, and he shows that treatment is limited when we fail to treat the entire family.
