Research shows that intimate partner sexual violence (IPSV) is the most common form of sexual assault. Professional focus is often on the victim, but more information is needed about the perpetrators in order to have a fuller understanding of this crime. The very nature of IPSV – sexual assault within a relationship – means that professionals who work with victims must understand the dynamics of perpetrators as well. This new book will distill the knowledge that exists about perpetrators of IPSV. It includes chapters by authors who have worked directly with IPSV perpetrators and covers important subjects such as addressing IPSV in batterer groups, police management strategies, the danger of IPSV to children, the different types of violence perpetrators use, and prevention approaches for young people. There is also still a widely held view that rapists are strangers in alleyways. This book is intended to educate professionals about who is a perpetrator, as well as to highlight the very real danger these perpetrators represent, including a heightened risk of lethality. The contributors look at the social context of IPSV and the implications for prevention and provide hands-on knowledge to practitioners in a number of fields. The book may also be used within the academic context in fields such as social work, sociology, counseling, psychology, medicine, nursing, criminal justice, and law.

Throughout history philosophers have sought to understand the nature of wisdom and how to achieve it, but Reverend George Johnsons Wisdom explains that true wisdom comes from above and is a necessity for daily living. For centuries, many people grew up in homes defi ned by tradition and wisdom while others grew up in homes defi ned by whim and lack of knowledge. Wisdom informs us that a wise person seeks understanding and knowledge, and anyone can receive it if he or she seeks it. Wisdom gives voice to the voiceless, help to the helpless, and hope to the hopeless.With this said, Johnsons own wisdom has directed him to construct Wisdom using an unconventional pattern, where readers do not necessarily have to read prior chapters in order to understand future chapters. Wisdoms inspiring words captivate readers as each chapter tells a story, tells us what to do, and tells us what not to do. Wisdom touches on every aspect of life from individuals getting rid of baggage that so easily weighs us down to learning how to enjoy life by smelling the roses. To this end, Wisdom is an inspirational manuscript full of voices of wisdom and ethics for everyday living.
