This text offers a balance of clinical and social psychological
theory and research, as well as prevention and intervention
techniques with the purpose of understanding and ultimately ending
gender-based violence. The authors address several forms of
violence, including rape, intimate partner violence, stalking, and
sexual harassment in a contemporary linguistic style carefully
crafted to avoid victim blaming. Although most men do not
perpetrate violence against women, such violence is not a "women's"
issue; it will take the strength and courage of both women and men
to solve this human issue.
This book moves full circle in its coverage of the topic as it
explores the silent epidemic of men's violence against women, the
grave consequences of this violence on both individuals and
society, and the historical and current foundations that serve to
both criminalize and tolerate men's violence against women. The
authors describe a variety of efforts to treat both offenders and
victims highlighting both their vital importance and their
insufficiency in preventing violence. The final part of the book
contains descriptions of model violence prevention approaches and
techniques for implementing these programs. Readers are empowered
as they discover how they can be part of the solution.
Men's Violence Against Women is intended as a text for courses in
gender-based violence in a variety of disciplines including
psychology, sociology, and women's, men's, and/or gender studies.
The book is also a valuable resource for college and community
gender-based violence prevention and intervention program
