Summary
"Although crime statistics and the media have led us to believe that men are almost always the perpetrators of intimate abuse, and women the victims, Violent Partners uncovers a far more complex story in which both partners often participate in a dynamic of abuse." "Essential reading for therapists, family members, couples, public health experts, lawmakers, and members of the criminal justice system, Violent Partners provides a breakthrough plan for ending the cycle of abuse."--BOOK JACKET
