Description - ABC of Domestic and Sexual Violence by Susan Bewley

ABC of Domestic and Sexual Violence is a practical guide
for all health care professionals who are looking after abused
individuals (whether knowingly or not) and who wish to learn more
in order to help their patients. It employs a positive and hands on
approach, emphasising simple history taking skills and clinical
?tips? and pitfalls to help demystify what is often
considered a sensitive or difficult subject area.

This new ABC title covers background and epidemiology, including:
international and cultural perspectives, common presentations, how
to identify abuse, and guidance on subsequent acute and longer-term
medical and psychosocial interventions. It provides guidance on
legal perspectives including documentation and sources of help and
advice. While focusing mainly on women, it will also cover aspects
relating to children and men. It also incorporates victim
testimonies and case scenarios throughout.

From a multidisciplinary team of contributors ABC of Domestic
and Sexual Violence is ideal for all general practitioners,
accident and emergency, practice nurses, health visitors, midwives,
social workers, and other primary and secondary care health care
professionals.
