The article examines two publications that address animal abuse in the context of family violence. It discusses the impact of animal abuse on victims, Hispanic families, and welfare cases and the implications of the abuse for professionals. It cites an entire issue of the "Journal of Emotional Abuse," in which Frank Ascione was interviewed and talked about the role of animals in the development of children. It also mentions Karen D. Schaefer's article, "Cruelty to Animals and the Short-and Long-Term Impact on Victims," which discussed how family violence usually included various forms of abuse.
