After gaining her freedom, she studied for an Associate Diploma in Welfare Studies (La Trobe University, Victoria) and has devoted 20 years to the study of intimate partner sexual violence, supporting survivors and making resources available for both survivors and professionals. She is co-author with Dr. Patricia Easteal of the book Real Rape, Real Pain: Help for women sexually assaulted by male partners, and runs the IPSV support and educational website Aphrodite Wounded (www.aphroditewounded.org). Patricia Easteal, AM, PhD is a Law Professor at the University of Canberra, Australia.

The rape victims who are suffering the greatest long-term psychological harm are those women who have been sexually assaulted by a current or former partner, yet this is the form of violence against women that we are talking about the least. This volume puts the issue of intimate partner sexual violence front and centre, where it belongs. Professionals, community members, and survivors themselves will find here the key insights and practice guidelines needed to support healing, promote safety, and hold offenders accountable. The authors have made a huge contribution to justice and recovery. -- Lundy Bancroft, author of Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men Written by a multi-disciplinary group of experts, and with the authority that comes from thorough research and many years of practice experience, this book confronts the neglected experience of sexual violence towards intimate partners. As well as providing empowering knowledge for victims/survivors of all ages, it is essential reading for people working in the criminal justice system, health care, mental health, social welfare and community organisations. -- Lorraine Radford, Professor of Social Policy & Social Work, University of Central Lancashire, Preston, UK This excellent volume provides important information about how women around the world experience IPSV and the horrific responses that they too frequently receive from service providers. [...] The chapters on service provision provide excellent insight on the best ways to assist women (and men) who have been victimized by their partners, validating their experiences and helping them down the path of healing. [...] This book also provides cutting-edge research on the risks, causes and --- far too often --- deadly consequences of IPSV. It is an important resource for anyone who works with survivors of IPSV or who has a family member, friend, or loved one who is a survivor. The book that you are about to read is a critically important step in acknowledging the life-damaging impact of IPSV and helps to give voice to this group of survivors who have been too long silenced. -- from the foreword by Raquel Kennedy Bergen, Professor and Chair of the Department of Sociology, St. Joseph's University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It's always good to read a book that tells me 'I'm not crazy to feel like this!' This is a book that does that, so I found it very helpful!
