Family violence has become an issue of significant concern within the Aboriginal community. One of the unique aspects of family violence within this community is its link to the history of colonization. This volume presents a number of studies on the effects of colonization, the need for programming specific to and by Aboriginal people and the efforts made by the Aboriginal community to meet that need. The success and respect that these projects have elicited from the community will build confidence and pave the way for their development and the pursuit of alternative approaches to family violence prevention in the Aboriginal community.

First in the Hurting and Healing series on intimate violence from RESOLVE and Fernwood.
