Domestic Violence and Children - A handbook for schools and early years settings

£19.99

Product description

From the description on the back of the book:
"What can schools and social care workers do to help children affected by domestic violence?
Large numbers of children are affected by domestic violence. The problem crosses every social class and culture. It causes distress and anxiety in children and adversely affects their learning and play, as well as their behaviour, well-being and school attendance.
Education professionals may know of a child or family in crisis and want to help, yet feel outside their comfort zone, grappling with a complex issue not covered in their training. This book describes the impact of domestic violence on children and provides support for education and social care professionals. It takes heavy workloads into account and suggests practical ways of meeting the needs of pupils who come from difficult home backgrounds.
Domestic Violence and Children draws on the expertise of specialist domestic violence workers and counsellors, psychologists, teachers, mentors and family support workers. It provides essential help and information to all children's service directorates, including professionals in education, social care, health and the voluntary sectors."

This book is in very good condition, although the covers are rather worn and scuffed (particularly the back cover), the pages are slightly worn in places (e.g. at the bottom) and the previous owner's name has been written in pen in the top right corner of the first page.
