In the field of domestic violence, community collaboration has been an essential part of both prevention and intervention. However, there have been vast differences in perspective, methodology, understanding, interpretations, and concerns among the various partners. This volume examines models of collaboration between personnel in social service agencies, women's centers, domestic violence programs, medical and mental health settings, and law enforcement. Techniques are detailed that allow knowledge about domestic violence and primary prevention to be integrated into a community response by all those involved. Further, the authors describe in detail how the possibilities for communities to respond to domestic violence victims is based on how these various groups perceive the victim; how an individual agency personally responds and how it is possible to provide safety for women in their own homes and communities. Stopping Domestic Violence: How a Community Can Prevent Spousal Abuse is an excellent resource for educators, social workers, public health professionals, clinicians, medical and mental health professionals, and law enforcement personnel.
