Batterer Intervention: Program Approaches and Criminal Justice Strategies $69.00
Authors: Kerry Healey, Christine Smith, and Chris O'Sullivan 
Book Description:
Batterer intervention programs are an integral part of any comprehensive approach to domestic violence. However, because intervention programs are relatively new, there is a need for increased communication between programming providers and criminal justice professionals. The latest publication in NIJís Issues and Practices series, Batterer Intervention: Program Approaches and Criminal Justice Strategies provides judges, prosecutors, and probation officers with the information they need to better understand batterer intervention and make appropriate decisions regarding programming.
