This book presents detailed case histories of women whose harrowing experiences are described on a five-level research-based continuum ranging from those women who were successful in ending the violent relationship quickly to those who remained with the batterer for many years while the severity of the assaults and injuries escalated.Edition/Copyright: 05
"Ending Intimate Abuse is a must-read book to raise consciousness, increase reporting, prevent or reduce the occurrence of abuse, facilitate its adjudication, and most importantly to bring about individual healing and trauma reduction quickly. I predict that this exceptionally well-written, highly readable and practical book will become indispensable to all young adults, high school and college educators, and their concerned parents."
--Elizabeth Plionis, Ph.D, Associate Professor and Assistant Dean, National Catholic School of Social Services, Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C.
"Preventing intimate abuse is the challenge this significant book undertakes. The very moving women's stories, together with Roberts' cogent insights, give us a fresh perspective. The key turning points and survival guidelines make this new book a must read for women of all ages, and especially college students."
--Linda Mills, Ph.D., J.D., Professor of Social Work, Affiliated Professor of Law, New York University, and author of Insult to Injury
"Ending Intimate Abuse should be included on every high school's and college's list of required reading. I have learned more from Ending Intimate Abuse, especially about early dating violence intervention, than from any other book in a long time. Thank you, Al and Beverly, for your potentially lifesaving research."
--Victoria L. Lutz, J.D., Executive Director, Crossroads Safehouse, Fort Collins, Colorado
"Roberts and Roberts landmark study translates a complex issue into concrete useful information! Every young person needs to know the warning signs of abusive dating behaviors discussed in this book. Millions more need to know the practical steps to establish safety and mobilize community resources for themselves - or friends and loved ones- trapped in relationships of intimate abuse. The voices of survivors demystify practical guidelines and strategies to escape abuse while their stories remind us of the power unleashed with Ending Intimate Abuse." -Anne H. Flitcraft M.D., Associate Professor of Medicine, University of Connecticut School of Medicine
"Ending Intimate Abuse is about 501 women who suffered violence at the hands of men they trusted - dates, boyfriends, fiances, and husbands. Ending Intimate Abuse is a good read and a powerful book. I recommend this book for undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in the helping professions and for policymakers. Its combination of theoretical insight with practical suggestions makes a significant contribution to the field of domestic violence."
--Kathleen M. Heide, Ph.D., Professor of Criminology at the University of South Florida and licensed clinical psychologist. Author of Young Killers
"Ending Intimate Abuse is a must-read book to raise consciousness, increase reporting, prevent or reduce the occurrence of abuse, facilitate its adjudication, and most importantly to bring about individual healing and trauma reduction quickly. I predict that this exceptionally well-written, highly readable and practical book will become indispensable to all young adults, high school and college educators, and their concerned parents." --Elizabeth Plionis, Ph.D, Associate Professor and Assistant Dean, National Catholic School of Social Services, Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C.
"The strength of this work by Roberts and Roberts lies in their focus on the initial stages of the abusive relationship, often in high school or college...Ending Intimate Abuse gives the reader an honest and emotional look into the experiences of victims of domestic violence...this work will be of great value. It provides insights into what victims experience and the differences between those individuals who leave violent relationships and those who stay in them...perhaps the most important contribution of this book is the practical advice it offers to victims and their families, as well as to those who are offering professional help to them."
