This work translates research into practice by examining the intersection of family violence and health. It looks at the healthcare needs of people who have experienced abuse and subsequently have related chronic diseases and conditions. It summarizes research and clinical cases and offers practical suggestions to the psychologists and other healthcare providers working in a variety of settings. Chapters address the implications for clinical practice as well as review relevant studies and provide additional resources. Also, the special needs of children with disabilities, elders, and women are discussed.
