Review:

"This scholarly work by Anna Motz is a vital resource for all professionals dealing with violent women. It is a wonderful book and I am proud to be associated with it." - Baroness Helena Kennedy QC

"This deeply felt and well-researched book exposes the myths and challenges the rhetoric behind violent women. Its fascinating, sharply etched clinical portraits, richly embedded in their social and historical milieu, challenge us in a subtle and accessible manner. It offers an integrated approach to understanding and caring for a disadvantaged patient group. It should be read and reread." Raymond Travers, The British Journal of Psychiatry (2009) 194, 379-384

"This short book is an excellent introduction to working with women in forensic settings, and also offers insights to more seasoned practitioners. [ ] I am certain that it is a book I will dip into whenever I am faced with a particularly complex and challenging female patient, and would definitely recommend to others, both as an introduction to working with women and as a reference." - Kajal Patel, The Journal of Forensic Psychiatry & Psychology, 2009

"This is an invaluable book not just for those working within forensic settings (although it is undoubtedly essential reading if you do) but would be of relevance to anyone interested in female expressions of violence more generally." Laura Pipon-Young, Clinical Psychology Forum 198, June 2009.

"Motz's boook goes a long way in developing a better understanding of female violence and will be beneficial in the optimal confinement and treatment of women who commit such acts." - Nicola Revington, Psychological Medicine, Volume 42, 2012

Reviews of the first edition:
