dc.description.abstractThis article analyses the conceptual issues surrounding domestic violence against women, including the lack of clarity in identifying accurate prevalence rates, and the affect of domestic violence on other family members. Research conducted in Australia and overseas provides an evidence base for the contention that violence against women is a serious problem for healthcare and society, and should be addressed comprehensively in both the healthcare and socio-legal context to protect the woman and the family. It is argued that solutions to the problem rely on knowledge and understanding of gender relations, cultural factors, the psychology of intimate partner attachments and the socio-legal system, particularly for separating couples. Recommendations for best practice in helping victims of violence are provided.en_US
