Children's Perspectives on Domestic Violence

by Audrey Mullender et al - £29.99  Sage Publications (2002)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780761971061 | ISBN 10: 0761971068

How do children who live with domestic violence cope? How do they make sense of their experiences? Do they receive the right sort of help from formal and informal sources?
 
Drawing on the newest research designed to hear the voices of children and young people, this important book examines children's experiences and perspectives on living with domestic violence. The authors explore:

  • the effect of domestic violence on children
  • what children say would help them most in coping with domestic violence
  • the advice children would offer other children who find themselves in similar circumstances, their mothers and the helping professions.
This accessible book written for students, their teachers, researchers and all those working with children - across social work, health, child psychology and psychiatry, the law and education - will provide a vital insight into children's own perspectives on domestic violence.
"The research methodology and the problems encountered when studying a subject such as domestic violence, coupled with the ethical problems of researching with children, are discussed at length in the book. This gives a good insight into the intricacies of conducting such a research study. The research looked not only at children who were known to have direct contact with domestic violence, but also what children in general thought and felt about domestic violence. The presentation of the findings, both in tabular and narrative form, was well presented."
(Accident and Emergency Nursing Journal )
"A treasure-chest of rich, diverse and powerful extracts from children and young people - in particular the material presented on different coping strategies used by children who have experienced domestic violence is an important contribution to an area about which very little is known"
(Adoption and Fostering Journal)
