With the belief that intervention should be available to all members of families experiencing domestic violence, the authors of this book provide practitioners with the necessary knowledge base to operate successfully a group programme for children of battered women.

The programme, aimed at children aged from four to 12 years, provides a framework for healing and education. Peled and Davis guide readers through an initial child assessment, with sample intake forms provided in an appendix. They then describe both group sessions for the children that take place over a 10-week period and concurrently run parenting skills groups. The authors go on to detail a family session which marks the conclusion of the programme.
