Domestic Violence Conference Suggested Reading

Hello! I always look forward to seeing everyone at the annual WSCADV conference and I’m so sad that we can’t meet in person this year. I’ve assembled a list of book recommendations from WSCADV staff and from me, which may be ordered from us as single copies and in sets. We will ship to you via media mail (in the continental U.S.) for no extra charge.  Many of these books are also available as e-books or on digital audio via our website.

There are far more books that we could recommend here, but I am trying to include a mix of “classics” along with new titles. Some self-care and inspirational books and novels are included. The pandemic has affected suppliers so I am listing books that are either in stock or easily and quickly available to ship. Hoping to see you next year!
