Editorial Reviews

In a scholarly and clinically astute work Joseph Scalia has integrated a wide range of clinical and developmental theories that demythologizes and humanizes a psychoanalytic pariah, the batterer. In a clearly written style Scalia provides firm and valuable guidelines for treatment laced with substantial clinical vignettes. Intimate Violence is essential reading for every clinician who works with batterers and their victims." This work is a watershed....a must, not only for all mental health workers but also for society at large.
