Review by Library Journal Reviews

Authored by an experienced counselor, this wise, compassionate guide focuses on two key issues: how to tell if someone is a potential abuser and whether that person is likely to change. Case studies, "warning signs," and chapter summaries framed as "jerk tests" add to the volume's usefulness. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
