While there is a growing body of research on the children of battered women, there remains little practical information on the subject of intervention with these at-risk children. This book remedies the situation; providing insight to this varied and complex area, it overviews current practices and strategies and highlights recent innovations in the field.

The topics examined by the contributors include: shelters; domestic counselling; child protection services; the criminal justice system; and violence prevention and education in schools and communities.
