Product Description

Product Description

Intimate Partner Sexual Violence (IPSV) is the most common type of sexual violence and a common component of domestic violence, yet most cases go unreported and service responses are often inadequate. This book brings together advice for all those professionals working with individuals who have experienced IPSV and puts forward recommendations to tackle this prevalent form of sexual violence.

With contributions from leading experts on IPSV, Intimate Partner Sexual Violence is a comprehensive guide to the subject which bridges the gap between research and practice. Multidisciplinary and international in approach, the book covers key issues salient to all professionals - the impact of IPSV, reproductive coercion, the physical and psychological indicators, possible consequences of taking a case to court, and best practice service responses. One section also addresses the risks and needs of IPSV victims in different contexts, such as those in same-sex or teenage relationships, immigrant victims, and those living in rural areas or in prison.

This is an authoritative resource for all professionals who work with IPSV victims including counselors, social workers, refuge workers, victim advocates, mental health professionals, pastoral workers, lawyers, police, and health practitioners.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic New Resource. Nov. 11 2013
By Carz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book helps to move the focus of IPSV from the seminal studies of the 1980s and 1990s where the issue was defined to a place where the need for services isn't questioned. The editors have drawn together a number of international professionals who provide insight on many issues that need to be considered when discussing Intimate Partner Sexual Violence, providing real advice for other professionals and services. They reinforcing the need for IPSV specific consideration by a wide range of service providers they also remind us that IPSV victims are not a homogeneous group covered by a 'one size fits all' approach, and give advice for working with teens, immigrants, and people from the LGBT community.

As a student this book provides an amazing array of current information about an issue that still needs a lot of research and consideration. Well researched and well referenced it provides a starting point if one chooses to look closer at a specific issue related to IPSV.
