Counseling Victims of Violence: A Handbook for Helping Professionals (Paperback)
With violence of all kinds -- from child abuse and domestic violence to hate crimes and stalking -- at an all-time high, today's counselors must be prepared to treat many types of victims. Counseling Victims of Violence offers practical guidance and helps a counselor determine if a victim should be referred to a specialist. Each chapter covers a specific type of violent victimization, detailing which issues to address in each of the three stages of counseling (crisis intervention, short-term, and long-term) and highlighting often-overlooked secondary victimizations and social services resources. Quick-glance reference charts summarize each chapter's contents.
