    Violence Across the Lifespan presents students with scholarly articles and chapters that take a multidisciplinary approach to understanding family violence across the lifespan.

    The anthology is organized into six units. The opening unit introduces key theories from the fields of criminology, psychology, and sociology used in understanding violence. Later units progress through the lifespan, beginning with examining interpersonal violence and children, moving to interpersonal violence and adolescents, adults, and finally, older adults. The readings address all forms of interpersonal family violence including emotional abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect. They also covers abuse that occurs in educational settings such as bullying and sexual assault. Finally, issues of financial exploitation and self-neglect occurring in older adulthood are covered. The collection concludes with strategies for collaborating within multidisciplinary teams to increase effectiveness and for developing effective self-care strategies to prevent secondary traumatic stress.

    Violence Across the Lifespan is an ideal resource for courses in criminology, psychology, counseling, and social work that prepare students to support or interact with individuals who have endured acts of violence.
