Item description for Linking Animal Cruelty and Family Violence by Anne Zilney Lisa...
Linking Animal Cruelty and Family Violence is an innovative and exciting study in that another theoretical link in the causal chain leading to familial violence has been identified. The connection between animal abuse and child abuse sets up a diagnostic behavior that clinicians (physicians, psychologists, and social workers), teachers, and police (animal and crimes of violence) can use in generating data bases to monitor family abuse and perhaps possibly explain some types of homicide. Any indicators that facilitate longitudinal monitoring of potential perpetrators of crimes of violence would reduce the levels of victimization in society. This study is both theoretically exciting and pragmatically useful. This book will find a welcome audience among academics and practitioners.
