Product Description: This is probably one of the most important book on domestic violence to be published in Britain in the last several years. What Works in Reducing Domestic Violence? presents a wealth of information on domestic violence and the strategies which have proved effective for dealing with it. The book is outstanding for in the quality and number of its contributors, all of whom are well-known and respected in the field. The book is written to be accessible to practitioners, academics and any one engaged in multi-agency work in this area.Focusing on how to improve agency responses to women's needs, the chapters draw on a wide range of evaluations carried out internationally and on feedback from women themselves. Subjects covered include: ? housing needs; ?health services; the criminal justice response; ?children's needs; multi-agency working; perpetrators;? civil remedies; ?outreach and advocacy. The book also examines what is known about the risks of domestic violence and its costs, and makes the case for targeted interventions which will ultimately save both lives and money. The bibliography offers a most helpful listing of recent work in this field. This book has its origins in work commissioned in 1999 by the Home Office of England and Wales under its Crime Reduction Programme Violence against Women Initiative. Summaries of the work in each area were published as a Crime Reduction Programme Briefing Note which proved to be one of the most popular collections that the Home Office ever issued. The reports, now available in this book, represent the views of the authors, and should not be taken to be Home Office or Government policy. However, they amount to a comprehensive guide- which any professional in this field will want to have always to hand.
