This book, Family Violence: PREVENTION FOR AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITIES, is the first book in an important series of books on Family Violence, written by Dr. Alice Belcher, founder of the Certification Domestic Violence Advocate training program in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In this book Belcher introduces the genre of “Family Violence Prevention” written through the lens of what Belcher coins, the “Black Female Activist Lens.” Family Violence is a multi-billion-dollar industry. Because of acts of violence by abusers against family members, entire social service systems are supported through the violent behavior of abusers. Belcher introduces a new paradigm of prevention and speaks to "domestic violence" vs “family violence” as a genre; and Belcher introduces a more expansive description and approach to the genre, Family Violence: PREVENTION. “Each one, reach one, teach one. – Dr. A. Belcher
