Drawing on real-life cases as well as research data, Family Murder: Pathologies of Love and Hate distills the current psychiatric knowledge of different forms of murder within the family. Although crimes of this sort have made headlines for decades -- and although violence and homicide within the family are public health issues -- little guidance exists in the research literature for mental health professionals who treat these families or for the child protection workers and lawyers who interact with them.

This book offers a unique framework for examining the various types of family murder -- delving into the commonalities, the differences, and society's misconceptions and providing readers with a comprehensive guide to begin to understand these tragedies.
