Dr. Susan Hillock (Faculty)

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.
