Examines the psychobiological impact of domestic abuse within a trauma framework and explains how counsellors can facilitate recovery from domestic abuse within a secure, supportive therapeutic relationship. There has been growing awareness in recent years of the impact and consequences of domestic abuse, especially the relationship between domestic abuse and mental health. To appreciate the link between mental health and domestic abuse, professionals need to understand its complex nature and the psychobiological impact of repeated exposure to control and terror. Only with such understanding can effective intervention strategies be implemented, including counselling and psychotherapy. Issues addressed in this book include safety and protection issues, the long-term effects of abuse and working to restore hope.This book will be essential reading for counsellors and therapists, social workers, mental health professionals, practitioners and managers of refuges.
