?  About our Ebooks


Providing an authoritative overview of the growing phenomena of child to parent violence - a feature in the daily life of increasing numbers of families - this book outlines what we know about it, what is effective in addressing it, and outlines a proven model for intervention.

Based on non-violent resistance (NVR), the model is founded on a number of key elements: parental commitment to non-violence, de-escalation skills, increased parental presence, engaging the support network and acts of reconciliation. The book outlines the theory and principles, and provides pragmatic guidance for implementing these elements, accompanied by case studies to bring the theory to life.


'An excellent strengths-based practitioner guide to dealing with child-parent violence that is both theoretical coherent and easily applicable to practice.'
- Dr John Sharry, Co-founder Parents Plus Charity

'This book is based upon the author's extensive experience of practising and researching an area that is increasingly recognised as having very serious implications for families. Accessibly written, it provides a wealth of insights and guidance and should be required reading on all qualifying and post-qualifying courses in social work and related disciplines.'
- Professor Brid Featherstone, Head of Department (Behavioural and Social Sciences), University of Huddersfield

'I am delighted to recommend this book to the IASW readership and believe that it should be an essential book present in the offices of those in the helping professions, as well as being a core text within social work/allied healthcare programmes.'
