There are many myths about family violence: that it's only committed by men against their families; that it's only physical; that there aren't legal remedies for children or spouses to take action against violent family members. This book corrects the myths and provides the facts. Written with an empathetic tone, this text teaches about the warning signs and manifestations-physical, emotional, psychological, and economic-of domestic violence. Inclusion of the often-overlooked topics of elder abuse and violence against LGBTQ youth makes this text indispensable. Finally, a discussion of ways to report family violence wraps up this essential tome.
