(p.1) One Introduction
Domestic violence and health

Emma Williamson

Policy Press

This chapter argues that there is a need for British research that examines the issue of domestic violence and health, and which contextualises such research within the vast body of feminist-based domestic-violence research. It identifies a number of reasons why domestic violence and health has not been addressed until recently within a British context and defines the specific terms of reference that will be utilised throughout this text, bearing in mind the often-complex and problematic implications of such terms. This book is intended for use by a range of health professionals, particularly in relation to the experiences of the individual female research participants.

Keywords:   British research, domestic violence, feminism, health professionals
