At least 1.8 million women annually in the United States are beaten by their intimate partners - husbands, boyfriends, girlfriends and lovers. And that is only the number reported physically abused. It does not account for those who remain silent, or go through abuse that is emotional or psychological. In this concise work that covers an array of types of abuse, a team of writers show us the prevelance of this type of abuse, the risk factors for becoming a target, medical and psychological consequences, legal issues and effective treatments for recovery. This book also dispels myths about intimate violence, including the notion that one can identify a potential perpetrator. The most current research, theory and advocacy on this topic is presented so the reader will have the knowledge to help herself or others who are being abused....
