It Could Happen To Anyone IT COULD HAPPEN TO ANYONE;

By Alyce LaViolette and Ola Barnett
This bestseller offers a unique amalgamation of the practical clinical experience on battered women and their batterers. This book provides an understanding and empathy regarding the plight of battered women as they attempt to find safety. The integration of current knowledge with learning theory explains how any woman′s previous life experiences along with the effects of battering might influence her to stay with her abuser. The book′s content also explains how some social institutions, such as the criminal justice system, cannot be counted upon to protect her, thus making it dangerous for her to leave or stay. In extreme cases, she may even be killed. From a more optimistic viewpoint, the book describes many innovations geared to assist battered women through shelters, transitional housing, and temporary income support. A must read for anyone working in or training to work in a helping role for issues in domestic violence.
