Editors: Sandra A. Graham-Bermann, Ph.D. (Director, Child Violence and Trauma Lab, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, US)
Book Description:
Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a common and tragic event in the lives of women and children around the world. Estimates of lifetime occurrence range from 5% in Japan to 71% in Ethiopia, with at least 25% in the United States. The United Nations Secretary-General indicates that as many as 275 million children worldwide are exposed to violence in their homes every year. In addition to the financial and societal costs, women and children who experience IPV are at risk for developing physical injuries, heath problems, depression, anxiety, traumatic stress, and associated work and academic problems. Yet few countries offer services that have been proven to be effective in supporting these women and children. In this volume, two programs are described that have been found to be effective in reducing negative consequences and promoting resilience for diverse groups of women and children in North America. The subsequent chapters address what it would take to implement these or other such programs in countries around the world, including Sweden, Ukraine, Rwanda, Honduras, Peru and Pakistan. The authors are scholars in social work and psychology who work with women and children exposed to intimate partner violence and who are involved in researching issues related to the effects of IPV on women and children. Clearly, IPV is a global public health issue and this thought-provoking volume suggests ways to address it using culturally appropriate adaptations. (Nova)

Book Reviews

“This much-needed volume deftly interweaves historical context and state-of-the-art intervention science to provide guidance on providing domestic violence services in an array of cultural contexts. Individual chapters provide specific guidance on adapting the Kids’ Club and Moms’ Empowerment programs for diverse groups in the United States and internationally, helping readers learn how to apply evidence-based practices in communities worldwide.” - Sherry Hamby, Ph.D., Editor, Psychology of Violence, Director, Life Paths Appalachian Research Center (LPARC), Founder and Co-Chair, ResilienceCon, Research Professor of Psychology, University of the South, Monteagle, TN USA

"This volume, created and edited by Graham-Bermann, an international expert in research and intervention for children exposed to intimate partner violence, is a highly valuable contribution to the field. It is the first volume to compile evidence for the cross-cultural adaptation of intervention programs for families struggling with intimate partner violence, a tragically prevalent problem across the world. This important work is essential for researchers and practitioners in the field of intimate partner violence in order to best adapt their interventions in a culturally competent manner. It is particularly vital in today’s world, including within the U.S. that we expand our interventions to reach a broader and more diverse range of families struggling with these issues." - Alytia A. Levendosky, Ph.D., Professor and Acting Co-Director of the MSU Psychological Clinic, Department of Psychology, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI, USA

"This edited volume chronicles the impressive array of differing cultural contexts where Dr. Graham-Bermann’s ground-breaking intervention programs for women and children affected by intimate partner violence have been successfully implemented. It goes a step further by also outlining issues and challenges for potential future implementation in a variety of cultural contexts around the globe, carefully including vulnerable women from traditionally disenfranchised communities. The significance of the impact of the Kids’ Club and Moms’ Empowerment programs in improving the lives of children and their mothers to date cannot be overstated. This volume is innovative and timely by addressing how cultural competence and sensitivity can be successfully cultivated in rigorous evidence-based programs firmly grounded in scholarly evidence and clinical wisdom." - Caroline Piotrowski, PhD MPH, Director of Violence & Injury Prevention Research Group, Associate Professor of Community Health Sciences, Max Rady College of Medicine, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
