This book considers the devastating impact of family violence on children, the links between violence and spouse abuse on child development and clinical dysfunction, children's views of violence and strategies for intervention and prevention. The authors weave cases, conceptual models of abuse and dysfunction and empirical research to portray the scope of the problem and promising avenues of resolution.
