This helping professions book provides a broad-based understanding of the reasons for violent behavior and offers treatment strategies to help victims as well as perpetrators of violence. While most books on violence take a criminal justice approach and focus on the victims of violence, Glicken attempts to include the perpetrators of violence as well. The book covers many types of violence including school violence, random violence, workplace violence, domestic violence and violence among inmates. Also includes coverage of September 11th and the resulting economic downturn, which could lead to increased crime, domestic violence, and drug abuse. Criminal justice professionals, social workers, psychologists, etc.
