Making an Impact: Children and Domestic Violence - A Reader

by Marianne Hester, Chris Pearson & Nicola Harwin
£22.99   paperback  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2006)

Making an Impact: Children and Domestic Violence - A Reader by Marianne Hester, Chris Pearson & Nicola Harwin (Large format - A4 size)
The first part of this reader looks at the links between domestic violence and the abuse of children, as assesses its effect on their future well-being. Part two is a guide to relevant civil and criminal legislation. The last part details practical issues for interventions with children and their carers, and domestic violence perpetrators. Produced by a consortium consisting of the NSPCC, Barnado's and the University of Bristol, and commissioned by the Department of Health, this Reader will enable professionals working with children to develop informed, sophisticated and collaborative child care and protection responses for children who are experiencing domestic violence.

"An extremely valuable, accessible summary and overview of relevant research on domestic violence and its consequences for children. The authors raise many key and realistic practice dilemmas and address some complex questions about safe and empowering interventions."
