A radical new take on the crisis of intimate abuse, Violent
Partners argues that as a culture we misunderstand the root
causes and basic effects of abuse, and until that changes
there is no hope of fixing the problem. Dr. Linda Mills
challenges assumptions, tears down myths, and offer
solutions, all the while telling riveting stories of couples
who have conquered violence in their relationships. In
Violent Partners, she describes several programs that hold
promise for addressing intimate abuse, including two
nationally known and groundbreaking treatment
programs-Peacemaking Circles and Healing Circles.
Controversial, provocative, and accessible, Violent Partners
is unlike any other book on abuse and relationships, and
highlights in great detail the complexities of violence
through the stories of men and women who have acknowledged
their abuse and sought to do something about it. This is
essential reading for anyone seeking to understand violence
in their own relationship, friends and family members of
victims and abusers, and legal and mental health
practitioners looking for a new and valuable approach to
treating couples in crisis.
