People in crisis because of the violence of others suffer emotional & physical injury and have their place in society disrupted if the violence is from a family member or intimate. The author states that in addition to assistance for individual victims of violence, social change strategies are paramount in addressing the culturally embedded values & social practices from which so much violence originates worldwide. This approach may eventually reduce the tragic effects of violence.
