Additional Book Details

This book provides a comprehensive guide to the development of a coordinated community response to domestic violence based on the internationally known "Duluth Model." Drawing from the experiences of practitioners, scholars, and researchers in the field, this book provides rich insights into the complexities and challenges of addressing domestic violence. Eight key components of a successful community intervention project are addressed in separate chapters:

- Developing policies and protocols

- Enhancing networking among service providers

- Building monitoring and tracking systems

- Developing a supportive infrastructure for victims

- Providing sanctions and rehabilitation opportunities

- Addressing the needs of children

- Evaluating the effectiveness of community response

Other chapters discuss types of violence that have been most difficult to address in providing a community response, the use of violence by women, and marital rape. Replication and adaptation in different countries (England, Australia, and New Zealand) are the focus of two chapters that lend an international perspective. This book provides the answers about what is indeed the "Duluth Model."
