Dealing effectively with violence in the family is one of the most pressing social needs of our day. This curriculum is designed to enable both the secular and the religious communities to mobilize their resources and effect change.

Violence in the Family is a resource for both individuals and groups working on violence in the family--particularly spouse abuse and childhood sexual abuse. Placed squarely in the context of religious values and concerns, this manual provides the detailed methodology for effective training of clergy and other professional helpers. Sample outlines and detailed workshop models, with supplementary materials, make possible a step-by-step, how-to-do-it approach to training. An appendix contains twelve articles for additional background information. This curriculum was developed by the staff of the Center for the Prevention of Sexual and Domestic Violence in Seattle, Washington.
