"Assessment of Partner Violence: A Handbook for Researchers and Practitioners" provides a comprehensive review of assessment information spanning five decades of research and three types of assessment methods: interview, self-report measures, and analogue assessment/behaviour coding devices. This handbook offers detailed descriptions and critiques of several dozen instruments in an easy-to-read reference format. Like its companion book - "Assessment of Family Violence: A Handbook for Researchers and Practitioners" - this volume covers target population, equipment needs, format, administration and scoring guidelines, psychometric analysis, primary and related references, and scale availability as well as advantages, limitations, and general recommendations. In addition, the authors provide valuable contexts by discussing key psychometric concepts and research issues as well as practical clinical issues in the assessment of partner violence.
