Responding to the Experiences of Survivors
This book uncovers the experiences of disabled women who have suffered domestic violence, drawing on the first UK national study conducted in this area. It discusses the nature of violence perpetrated against disabled women and the range of its impacts, and outlines how services can be developed and improved, pointing to examples of good practice.
Problems and Needs
An increasing number of families are becoming homeless, often as a result of domestic violence, which leaves women and their school age children without homes. This multidisciplinary volume is the first to look at the variety of problems encountered by this group and to propose strategies for managing those problems.
Exploring Feelings, Coping Strategies and Pathways to Recovery
This book explores the cases of five young people who have been victims of domestic violence. It provides deep insight into how their experiences have affected their emotional behaviour, the complexities of issues related to it and those aspects of support which provide the greatest benefit to them.
Still Forgotten, Still Hurting
This book explores the experiences of adult survivors of domestic violence in adulthood. It examines current research and sets out best practice guidance for supporting adult survivors and children following domestic violence. Personal testimonies and poems feature throughout.
