Domestic and Family Violence: New book by Silke Meyer and Andrew Frost out now

A new book by Associate Professor Silke Meyer (Monash Gender and Family Violence Prevention Centre) and Dr Andrew Frost, Domestic and family violence: A critical introduction to knowledge and practice, is now out.

Published by Routledge, the book offers a thorough introduction into the nature and extent of domestic and family violence in contemporary social contexts and serves as a foundation for informed practice. It provides a firm theoretical and empirical overview of core issues, covering the challenges and support needs experienced by those affected, along with the implications this raises for the range of relevant response services.

It will be an invaluable resource for those designing, coordinating, and conducting service responses.
