Violence in the Family is a collection of original articles by practitioners and academics that focuses on family violence in rural and northern areas. Geography and attitudes figure centrally in many of these discussions, but more specific problem areas, including types of violence and intervention possibilities, are also discussed in practical and treatment-focused terms. A complement to more general treatments of family violence, this collection, with its scrutiny of family violence in rural and northern areas only, is unique. Professors of social work and other disciplines will find this a valuable supplementary text in a wide variety of courses, such as child welfare, women's issues, direct practice, community work, public health, and social policy.
