This book, which is based on recent research, reveals the complex issues of identification and intervention with survivors of intimate partner abuse within the health system. The chapters have been written by experienced international researchers of high academic standing from a range of health disciplines. Historically, intimate partner abuse has been an ancient problem. It is only over the last decade that research has demonstrated the high prevalence, physical and psychological consequences associated with intimate partner abuse that bring survivors into contact with the health system. However, failure by health professionals to identify and assist survivors appropriately in these settings has necessitated new ways of addressing these issues. This book will be of value to students and practitioners alike.
