Over the course of a lifetime, 30% per cent of women and 16% of men will have experienced a form of domestic abuse. And yet so many of us are unsure exactly what constitutes abuse, and wouldn't know how to react if we, or one of our friends or family, found ourselves in an abusive relationship.

Natalie Collins is the perfect guide to lead you through this subject, amassing over a decade's experience leading workshops, raising awareness and capturing national media attention in her work against domestic abuse.

Highly readable, invaluably insightful and steeped in theological insight, Natalie starts right from the basics, exploring what domestic abuse is, why it is perpetrated and the impact it has on children and adults. Filled with case studies, including Natalie's own story of abuse, the book is second to none in its insights into various abusive behavioural traits and its clear pointers into how we can address domestic abuse, both as individuals and as a church community.
