Groupwork with children of battered women: a practitioner's guide
"This book is packed with essential information, liberally footnoted and clearly presented, that will familiarize the reader with the range of background material needed to work knowledgeably in this area. . . . It is an outstanding contribution to the literature, useful for the practitioner already at work with children and adults and inviting as a guide to the novice. Yet there is ample room for others to adapt and/or use the content selectively. In other words, it is suggestive but not dogmatic, and offers many tips for the facilitator as 'food for thought.' . . . A valuable resource. . . . This text offers a desired outcome evaluation form, an extensive set of up-to-date references, and an excellent index--all of which combine to make this work a valuable resource." --Gale Goldberg Wood in Social Work with Groups "This book provides many helpful therapeutic suggestions for practitioners working with children who have been abused in any way, including those who may have suffered from serious bullying or abuse by older children." --A. Elton in European Child & Adolescent Psychiatry "The book shines on goal-setting, intake and assessment, groupwork specifics, program documentation, and qualitative evaluation." --Sala Horowitz in Academic Library Book Review "This book... provides many helpful therapeutic suggestions for practitioners working with children who have been abused in any way, including those who may have suffered from serious bullying or abuse by older children." --A. Elton in European Child & Adolescent Psychiatry With excellent detail and hands-on style, Groupwork with Children of Battered Women provides practitioners with the required knowledge and direction to successfully operate a group program for 4- to 12-year-old children of battered women. The manual is based on the accumulated experience of the Domestic Abuse Project (DAP) of Minneapolis, and on the results of a qualitative evaluation of the program conducted from 1989 through 1991. The authors guide the reader through an initial child assessment process with sample intake forms that are provided in the appendix. Hour-long group sessions are scheduled over a 10-week period for the children while concurrent educational groups are made available to parents to enhance parenting skills. The program concludes with a family session designed to provide both review and recommendations. Groupwork with Children of Battered Women provides a framework for healing, education, and the opportunity to learn new conflict resolution skills for the entire family.

Review: Groupwork with Children of Battered Women: A Practitioner's Manual (Interpersonal Violence: The Practice Series)User Review - Christa - Goodreads
This book is a great guide to running a children's group with kids affected by domestic violence. I learned a lot about the intake process and the different topics one might use in such a program. The book is a little old, but still had a lot of great information. Read full review
