"Family Violence and Men of Color Healing the Wounded Male Spirit" Ricardo Carrillo & Jerry Tello
"Family Violence and Men of Color is the best book in cross-cultural issues and domestic violence that I have ever read. It is a good combination of literature review, clinical interventions, and cultural imagery that will not only inform the readers but help them develop a true appreciation for the essence of different cultures."

"This innovative book examines an important, timely topic...and makes an original contribution to the existing literature in the area of domestic violence. The content will greatly enhance practitioners' and students' understanding and skills in working with men of color, especially in situations involving domestic violence."
