by Phil Arkow,Frank R. Ascione




Evidence is mounting that animal abuse, frequently embedded in families scarred by domestic violence and child abuse and neglect, often predicts the potential for other violent acts. As early intervention is critical in the prevention and reduction of aggression, this book encourages researchers and professionals to recognize animal abuse as a significant problem and a human public-health issue that should be included as a curriculum topic in training. The book is an interdisciplinary source book of original essays that examines the relations between animal maltreatment and human interpersonal violence, expands the scope of research in this growing area, and provides practical assessment and documentation strategies to help professionals confronting violence do their jobs better by attending to these connections. As an outgrowth of the Latham Foundation’s 1995 training manual, Breaking the Cycles of Violence, this book is a historic step in helping professionals from these disciplines, as well as the general public, recognize the cyclical and insidious nature of family violence and provides training in recognizing peripheral forms of family violence outside a family’s immediate purview. It encourages cross-disciplinary prevention and intervention strategies with an ultimate goal of reducing the levels of violence which is such a great societal and cultural concern today.

This book brings together, for the first time, all of the leaders in this emerging field. They examine contemporary research and programmatic issues, encourage cross-disciplinary interactions, and describe innovative programs in the field today. Also included are vivid first-person accounts from survivors whose experiences included animal maltreatment among other forms of family violence. Child Abuse, Domestic Violence, and Animal Abuse provides professional communities of psychologists and child welfare specialists with a deeper, higher, and more encompassing awareness and understanding of the crucial linking of caring for animals and children in human experience. The combination of careful research, documentation, and compelling narrative accounts are blended into a rich resource to help professionals, concerned citizens, and parents understand how the ethics of caring are not bounded by species.

This book is very abundant in resarch and exploration of the link between animal abuse and intimate violence. Addtionally, they focus on children and pet-care programs in the latter part of the book. This portion is signifcant since these programs assist in preventing further domestic violence and animal abuse. Frank Ascione and Phil Arkow produced a very good book, and this book should be read by all within the domestic violence field, vetererians, and law enforcement officials.

I purchased this book to learn about this subject. And learn I did... It is as a matter of factly written, right from the start! Explains the NEED for all agencies to work together to fight child abuse-animal abuse- and domestic violence .Each agency see's the abuse to a child,they need to pay attention to any pets and their condition and the conditions of anyone else in the household. Animal Control also needs to keep their eyes open,Veterinarians also the list goes on.The public needs to take its head out of the sand, and say something to protect the kids the women or men and pets who are victims of Domestic Violence...These victims need help,we all need to help them,stop judging them,WE need to realize they are trapped in an awful situation---sometimes its life or death!!! Today the police can help in ways that used to be non-exsistant .It is hard to read about abuse , but its real,we can no longer pretend it doesn't happen. It probably happens right next door...

It usually takes me awhile to read through books such as this, but with the topic and everything that was presented, I was interested enough to finish the book, and research more.
