"One Road to Peace" is designed as a practice guide to lead the counsellor working with men who are violent towards their partners through the specifics of the counselling process. The authors instruct the reader in particular clinical skills, strategies and programme content, present a group treatment programme as the treatment of choice, describe individual assessment and counselling, examine current theory and research and identify the most salient factors in understanding men who assault their partners. Preparatory work, such as assessment prior to entering a programme, is explained in detail; crisis intervention work is examined. After a focus on group therapy and a detailed treatment manual, the authors explore the personal and interpersonal effects of working with violent men.
