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.
This book moves beyond naming and documenting the effects of children's exposure to domestic violence. It brings together innovative practices in prevention, intervention and interagency work, all grounded in cutting-edge research, providing a platform for the next stage of addressing this serious social problem. Grounded in the experiences of children and young people, it tackles the complex challenges in this work and identifies opportunities for developing new practices that recognise both children's vulnerability and agency in the context of domestic violence.
