Making An Impact - Children And Domestic Violence - A Reader (2nd edition)
The authors have put together a resource for all those working with children and families. It offers to enhance inter-agency working and to find creative ways to safeguard women at risk and minimize the emotional damage caused to children witnessing domestic violence.
This fully updated reader provides a comprehensive review of recent research and best practice. Divided into three parts, it highlights the success of multi-agency approaches and details practical issues for interventions with children and their carers, male perpetrators and, new to this edition, women. Endorsed by leading UK children’s charities, this book enables professionals working with children to develop informed, sophisticated and collaborative child care and protection responses, for children who are experiencing domestic violence.
Authors: Marianne Hester, Chris Pearson and Nicola Harwin, with Hilary Abrahams
