this is a highly recommended book and a must-have for all professionals who wish to help and support children affected by domestic violence. (Child Care in Practice)
As a researcher with a specific interest in domestic violence and socially excluded and vulnerable children, and having spent the last six years evaluating policy and practice in both areas, I found this book to be an invaluable addition to my own bookshelf as it clearly links the two research areas. It also provides an excellent source of information on relevant legislation and literature, not to mention practice tips, and will be much thumbed in the years to come. (Journal of Children's Services)

Praise for the second edition:
'This book provides an overview of how workers need to acknowledge and protect victims of domestic violence. It reflects on how professional bodies and the law are changing their approaches to focus on the experience of the child... Highlighted in detail are the processes by which professional bodies outline accountability. Domestic violence clearly devastates whole families and all agencies involved must be held accountable and ensure that children and women are not left at risk.'(Children and Young People Now)
Praise for the first edition:
'It is clear from the first few pages that this book will, without doubt, be a vital resource for professionals and those whose work brings them into contact with children affected by domestic violence, whether they serve as social workers, professional agencies, refuges, churches, police workers, school workers - in fact, anyone who comes into contact with children during the course of their work would do well to read this excellent book.'(www.adoption-net.co.uk)
