Making an Impact - Children and Domestic Violence focuses on the children who experience domestic violence and lays guidelines for how best to support and protect them.
Presented in a clear and accessible A4 format, the Reader is divided into three parts. Part One describes evidence for the links between domestic violence and the concomitant abuse of children, and assesses the effects of a context of violence on the children's future well-being. Part Two is a substantial and accessible guide to relevant criminal and civil legislation, including the Children Act 1989 and the Protection from Harrassment Act 1997. The third and last part details practical issues for interventions with children and their carers, and domestic violence perpetrators - the authors highlight the success of multi-agency approaches.
Produced by a consortium consisting of the NSPCC, Barnardo'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.
