Breaking the Silence of Violence: A Handbook on Domestic Violence for Clergy, Religious Counselors, Lay Workers and Religious Community Professionals, 1984

This handbook was an ecumenical educational resource for pastors, counselors, and staff in religious organizations in their work with congregants experiencing domestic violence. The first heading, "Why Should I Become Involved?" is immediately answered with, "You are already involved!" Spreading essential information about how to recognize battering, child abuse, and family violence characteristics was part of educational outreach in domestic violence advocates' history.
