Description

Canadians are more likely to be killed or assaulted by family members than by anyone else. Yet families in all their forms are supposed to be a haven of love and security. What lies behind this contradiction? And what can be done about it?

These are questions that sociologist Julianne Momirov explores in Family Violence: A Canadian Introduction. She explains the leading theories of why family violence exists; describes the many and varied forms that violence takes, from the physical to psychological to neglectand proposes policies and programs to address this issue.

This Third Edition includes the latest statistical data on this problem. The author addresses the self-identity of survivors, the changing nature of families and relationships today, the unique threats to Indigenous peoples and the elderly, and the role that social media plays in relationship violence.
