Dr. Irma Gibson

I caught up with Dr. Irma Gibson at the National Youth At-Risk Conference. She was giving a talk about her new book, Intimate Partner Violence Among African American Male Victims. The essence of this nonfiction book pertains to intimate partner violence (domestic violence) with a focus on an unnoticed population, black male victims. The content consists of fourteen awe-inspiring chapters strategically aligned with the task of addressing the twenty-first-century crisis of IPV comprehensively, truthfully, and holistically from a personal, research-based, practice-focused, and policy-based perspective. Real-world truths innovatively address and present a diverse range of topics and solutions, including the stories of IPV survivors and victims, mental and behavioral health caveats, the military aspect, issues of culture, bullying, and the influences of reality television. Most of the contributors are professional social workers as well as professionals in other disciplines, and have all either personally or indirectly experienced this public health problem.
