Show Summary Details


Part One identified the experiences of the stage-one participants in relation to their clinical interactions with healthcare professionals. A number of issues were acknowledged, including the extent of physical and non-physical injuries that the participating women ascribed to the domestic violence they were experiencing. This chapter addresses those concerns from the perceptions of the stage-two participants. As such, it addresses the identification and diagnosis of physical and non-physical injuries within a number of contexts. The chapter considers psychosomatic complaints and para-suicide.
