Editorial Reviews

Review

The rape victims who are suffering the greatest long-term psychological harm are those women who have been sexually assaulted by a current or former partner, yet this is the form of violence against women that we are talking about the least. This volume puts the issue of intimate partner sexual violence front and centre, where it belongs. Professionals, community members, and survivors themselves will find here the key insights and practice guidelines needed to support healing, promote safety, and hold offenders accountable. The authors have made a huge contribution to justice and recovery. --Lundy Bancroft, author of Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men

Format: Kindle Edition
This book, written and edited by a collection of some of the most knowledgeable, experienced and active advocates in the field, is an invaluable resource on an issue that is astonishingly avoided and rarely acknowledged, even though it is pervasive and highly damaging. How pervasive and how damaging, you ask? The book has all the information and statistics anyone will need to be convinced of the state of play, globally and among different populations as well. The book is well structured, addressing overarching topics such as How Serious Is Intimate Partner Violence? (Part 2) and Intimate Partner Sexual Violence And Best Practice Service Response (Part 3) with several chapters in each part. Written in a scholarly yet compassionate style and very well referenced, it is certainly a comprehensive book on the topic of intimate partner sexual violence.

Two chapters stood out for me, chapter 14, Responding to Christian Survivors of Intimate Partner Sexual Violence, by Barbara Roberts, and chapter 15, Law Enforcement Response to Intimate Partner Violence by Mike Davis. Barbara Roberts, a survivor of domestic abuse and author of Not Under Bondage: Biblical Divorce for Abuse, Adultery and Desertion (2008), makes an excellent contribution. She advocates passionately as a Christian who understands the complexities facing Christian victims. In particular, she addresses the mandates from Scriptures that cause the most difficulties to Christian victims, showing quite comprehensively how they have been misunderstood and misapplied.

Format: Paperback
This book helps to move the focus of IPSV from the seminal studies of the 1980s and 1990s where the issue was defined to a place where the need for services isn't questioned. The editors have drawn together a number of international professionals who provide insight on many issues that need to be considered when discussing Intimate Partner Sexual Violence, providing real advice for other professionals and services. They reinforcing the need for IPSV specific consideration by a wide range of service providers they also remind us that IPSV victims are not a homogeneous group covered by a 'one size fits all' approach, and give advice for working with teens, immigrants, and people from the LGBT community.

As a student this book provides an amazing array of current information about an issue that still needs a lot of research and consideration. Well researched and well referenced it provides a starting point if one chooses to look closer at a specific issue related to IPSV.
