Research from experts in the fields of psychology, sociology, criminology, and social welfare informs the book's broad coverage of current viewpoints and debates within the field. Organized chronologically, chapters cover child physical, sexual, and emotional abuse; abused and abusive adolescents; courtship violence and date rape; spouse abuse, battered women, and batterers; and elder abuse. New to the Third Edition New and expanded coverage of abused and abusive adolescents (Chapter 10 - Abused and Abusive Partners in Understudied Populations) and of marginalized groups (primarily in Chapter 10) helps students see the full range of family abuse. An increased focus on the neurobiology of child abuse provides new research and current information. A new two-color design featuring new photos makes the book more open and inviting.

She remains active in the field of family violence by reviewing articles for a large number of journals and performing as an external grant reviewer for a few organizations. She serves on the editorial board of the new journal, Youth Violence and Juvenile Justice. She also continues research on the impact of transitional housing on the lives of battered women. Robin D.
