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

Dr Ravi K. Thiara, Lorraine Radford

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.
