Summary: "The book aims to broaden thinking about adult abuse, assesses models of practice such as criminal justice and welfare, and covers groups who may be overlooked, such as people with brain injuries, older prisoners and adults within black and minority ethnic communities. Issues covered include domestic violence and honour-based crime, abuse in institutions, financial abuse and risk assessment in adult protection. The book is illustrated throughout with case studies, and gives a voice to the victims of adult abuse who can be forgotten in a working environment that can have an undue emphasis on target performance, indicators, standards, star ratings, paperwork and correct use of terminology." - BOOK JACKET
