Domestic Violence and Protecting Children
New Thinking and Approaches
Cathy Humphreys, Nicky Stanley, Joanne Westwood, Nicola Farrelly, Lorraine Radford
In this volume, the authors present an overview of the innovative work taking place in relation to domestic violence and child protection.
This book looks at new prevention initiatives and how interventions for children exposed to domestic violence have been developed. It shows how services for abusive fathers have evolved and provides discussion and critique of a number of new initiatives in the field of interagency risk assessment. With international perspectives and examples drawn from social care, health care and voluntary sectors, this book brings together established ideas with recent thinking to provide an authoritative summary of current domestic violence and child protection practice.
As a valuable source of guidance on how to work safely with children living with domestic violence, this is a key reference for social workers, health professionals and policy makers.
