Women's psychology


Aimed at a general audience, this volume dispels a number of myths about intimate violence against women and arms readers with knowledge they need to help themselves or others who have been victimized. Eleven contributions from academics and clinicians address the prevalence of these types of crimes and describe their impact on women's emotional and physical health. Legal issues and therapeutic interventions are also discussed. The editors teach psychology at the U. of Texas.
