This book provides definitions, case examples, and identifying traits of abusers. It also offers practical advice for managing crisis situations and attaining the finances and transportation to escape abusive situations.
Read this in preparation of taking my domestic violence professional exam in Illinois - I am a counselor at a DV shelter. One of the best books on the topic. Great overview as well as check lists to help readers with gaining personal insight. I refer to this book almost daily - my copy is kept on my work desk. I often use the check lists with clients.
