Picking Up the Pieces After Domestic Violence: A Practical Resource for Supporting Parenting Skills

by Kate Iwi and Chris Newman
£19.99   paperback  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2011)

Picking Up the Pieces After Domestic Violence: A Practical Resource for Supporting Parenting Skills by Kate Iwi and Chris Newman Domestic violence has a serious impact on children and families but some of the harm can be minimised by providing parents with effective guidance on developing safe, protective and positive ways of caring for their children in the aftermath of a violent relationship.
 
This practical guide provides techniques and exercises to help practitioners work in a structured and focused way with parents after domestic violence has occurred. It sets out a framework for assessing risks and needs, and covers how to build strengths, set goals, and plan an intervention pathway. Advice, exercises and handouts that are easily photocopied will help parents understand the impact of domestic violence and develop their relationship with their child. The resource also covers how to use discipline, talking to children, understanding child development, and how to build resilience and empathy. Guidance on working with both the perpetrator and the victim of domestic violence is included.
 
This invaluable resource will benefit child and family social workers, children's centre workers, therapists, counsellors and anyone supporting a family recovering from the trauma of domestic violence.
