Tod Augusta-Scott is the co-editor of two critically acclaimed books:

 

Innovations in Interventions to Address Intimate Partner Violence: Research and Practice. (Routledge Press, 2017)

Innovations in Interventions to Address Intimate Partner Violence: Research and Practice speaks to what can be done to effectively intervene to end intimate partner violence against women. Including contributions from both researchers and practitioners, chapters describe service innovations across systems in large urban and remote rural contexts, aimed at majority and minority populations, and that utilize a range of theoretical perspectives to understand and promote change in violence and victimization. Reflecting this range, contributions to this volume are organized into five sections: legal responses to domestic violence, intervention with men who have perpetrated domestic violence, responses to women who have experienced domestic violence, restorative approaches to intimate partner violence, and a section on integrating intervention for domestic violence across systems.  The book highlights advances in practice which will be of interest to researchers, practitioners, policy makers and students
