Listening to Battered Women: A Survivor-Centered Approach to Advocacy. Mental Health, and Justice presents an in-depth, multidisciplinary look at society's responses to domestic violence. Although substantial reforms have been made in the services available to battered women since the 1970s, the book shows how the public and private systems available to victims of domestic violence are still failing to meet the needs of the women who seek help.
Using a feminist perspective, authors Lisa A. Goodman and Deborah Epstein explore and critique the current available services in three different arenas: the domestic violence advocacy community, the mental health profession, and the justice system.
