Working with Domestic Violence and Abuse Across the Lifecourse: Understanding Good Practice

Available

Description

Spanning children's and adult's services, this book explores the nature and impact of domestic abuse and violence (DVA) throughout the lifecourse. It highlights evidence-informed practice and serves as an accessible and invaluable resource for all working with and supporting those dealing with DVA.

Structured around three core themes of coercive control, developmental experiences of violence and the importance of an intersectional understanding of DVA, this book highlights the need for a coordinated 'whole family' approach in safeguarding work in this area. Chapters move through different stages of life, addressing topics such as children living with domestic violence, abuse in young people's relationships, mental illness, substance use and adolescent to parent abuse.

Following significant changes in this field, including the introduction of coercive control as a legal offence and the global impact of COVID on DVA cases, this is a timely and much-needed resource.
