The new, 10th anniversary edition of Phil Cook's Abused Men: The Hidden Side of Domestic Violence has been released. Cook, an award-winning investigative journalist, has added up-to-date surveys on the prevalence of intimate partner violence against men with personal interviews as well as cases drawn from headlines of recent media covering politicians, and other public figures. He also includes updates on law, legislation, court activity, social responses, police activity, support groups, batterer programs, and crisis intervention programs.
Cook was one of the presenters at the historic "From Ideology to Inclusion: Evidence-Based Policy and Intervention in Domestic Violence" conference in Sacramento, CA. in February, 2008. To order DVDs of the conference, click here. To read more about the conference's content, click here.
