This book is designed to present a comprehensive and state-of-the-art review of the psychopathology and epidemiology of domestic violence, accompanied by related medical and legal considerations.  The introductory sections define domestic violence and its challenges.  The major body of the book is devoted to individual topics in various communities and subgroups, covering their behavioral and mental implications.  Topics include disparities and special populations, subtypes of offenders, ethical and legal components, impacts of gun ownership, and many other challenges.  Each chapter begins with a case study to illustrate the issue presented, concluding with resources and guidelines when available.

Intimate Partner Violence is an excellent resource for all clinicians who may encounter victims and perpetrators of domestic violence, including general, child, and forensic psychiatrists, emergency medicine physicians, primary care physicians, pediatricians, psychologists, social workers, school counselors, and all others.
