This short animated fiction book describes a woman named Rebecca and her experiences of family violence. This book presents her journey as she moves from victim to survivor to social activist. A structural feminist analysis of the root causes of family violence and interventions and strategies to assist survivors of family violence are highlighted. Geared to assist survivors of violence and service users, students who are learning about abuse, and clinicians/practitioners who are working in this area, specific information discussing the cycle of violence, stages of coping, feminist interventions, safety planning, and treatment for men is featured. In addition, suggestions for the prevention of family violence at cultural, political, and social levels are presented.The authors use 2 different writing styles within this text. Rebecca's actual story about her family is written at a grade 7 literacy level to make this book more accessible to a broad segment of the general public. At the same time, specific sections featuring theory, analysis, assessment, and intervention have been written with clinical practitioners and professional helpers in mind.

We wrote this book wanting it to be used primarily as a teaching tool for students who are beginning to learn about family violence and practitioners who are specializing in this area. The key concepts, interventions, and strategies featured in the book are based on over 15 years of social work clinical practice and 12 years of university teaching in the area of family violence.We also hoped that clinicians would use this book as a resource for service users who are experiencing family violence.
