Violence and Gender Relations: Theories and Interventions

Barbara Fawcett, Brid Featherstone, Jeff R Hearn, Christine Toft

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This major contribution to debates on violence and gender relations looks at abusive behaviour as it affects women, men, children and older people. The book is fundamentally concerned with the interrelations of theory and practice. It focuses both on the development of theory and on effective interventions and professional practices, particularly in the fields of social work and social welfare.

While a gendered approach to violence is the central theme of the book, other social divisions and oppressions - such as class, age and race - are analyzed, and their implications for intervention are considered. The book also explores the distinctions and connections between institutional and interpersonal violence. Special attention is given to current issues and debates: organizations and violence; men′s violence to women; and the relationship between violence, gender and generation. The contributors present important new empirical research on men′s violence to women and organizational responses, as well as providing more general theoretical analyses of the subject.
