This book examines children's experiences and perspectives on living with domestic violence. It offers a detailed explanation of the impact on children living with domestic violence, how children make sense of and cope with their experiences, the response they receive from various agencies and the fit between what children feel they need and what in reality they receive.

Written for students, researchers and all those working with children across the caring professions - including social work, health, nursing, and child psychology - this book will provide a unique insight into the impact of domestic violence on children.
