CHOICE Review

This book covers the legal and psychological factors regarding domestic abuse survivors leaving the abusive relationship. Some chapters are told from the survivor's point of view regarding the family court case and mental health counselling. Other chapters guide mental health practitioners through the legal process and court dynamics, with explanations of how the case proceeds. For family law attorneys, this book offers a glimpse of how important their work can be. It also explains why domestic abuse survivors leaving this family dynamic need to be treated with sensitivity, patience, and understanding. This book is a must-read for those in the mental health field working with domestic abuse survivors engaged in family court matters, and for attorneys practicing in, or wanting to practice in, family law. Summing Up: Essential. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals. --Jamie Aschenbach, Southern Connecticut State University
