Little material on domestic violence speaks of the impact on children - often the most vulnerable group in this context. Children Living With Domestic Violence:
  • highlights the links between abuse of women in the home and the abuse of children
  • explores good practice
  • assesses the consequences of legislation for women’s ability to protect themselves and their children
  • questions certain myths such as the ‘families need fathers’ stance.
The book will interest anyone working with women who have experienced violence, above all those working with children in whatever practice setting.

... one of the most comprehensive books focusing on the impact of domestic violence on children in the UK ... The book is both invaluable and stimulating with much material which could be practically applied. (Adoption & Fostering)

The book appeared to cover material not previously covered in a collection such as this and promised an interesting read. I was not disappointed. (Australian Social Work)

This book contains a wealth of information , research evidence, practice models and ideas. (BJSW)
