Yes! I have read this book and found it helpful:

Helping Her Get Free, Susan Brewster - https://sealpress.com/books/helping-her-get-free/ , check your library or friendly indie bookstore for it.

(Bancroft's book, in the references, recommends an earlier edition of the same book, called _To Be an Anchor in the Storm_.)

I considered myself well-informed about abuse when I read the book, but I still learned a lot from it esp. wrt the importance of validating the person you're trying to support and not replicating the same behavior her abuser is doing (some people, well-intentionedly, forcefully say "you HAVE to leave him now", etc., and telling her what to do is the same thing her abuser is doing, even if the outcome is supposedly good.) So I recommend it highly.
