Description

This book draws on a wide range of evidence to explore the facts about the relationship between substance misuse and domestic violence and their effect on children, and examines the response of children's services when there are concerns about the safety and welfare of children. It reveals the vulnerability of these children and the extent to which domestic violence, parental alcohol or parental drug misuse impact on children's health and development, affect the adults' capacity to undertake key parenting tasks, and influence the response of wider family and the community. It includes parents' own voices and allows them to explain what help they feel would best support families in similar situations. The authors explore the extent to which current local authority plans, procedures, joint protocols and training support information sharing and collaborative working. Emphasising the importance of an holistic inter-agency approach to assessment, planning and service provision, the authors draw from the findings implications for policy and practice in both children and adult services. This book is essential reading for all professionals working to promote the welfare and wellbeing of children and those working with vulnerable adults, many of whom are parents.

Author Biography

Hedy Cleaver is an emeritus professor at Royal Holloway, University of London. Her experience as a social worker and child psychologist has informed her research on vulnerable children and families and the impact of professional interventions. The findings from her research have had an identifiable impact on policy in the UK in respect to children and families over the last 20 years. She is co-author of Assessing Children's Needs and Circumstances: The Impact of the Assessment Framework, also published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers. Don Nicholson was a senior manager in social services before taking early retirement in 1996. Since then Don was involved in a range of research studies that explored the experiences of vulnerable children and families. His death is a great loss to the research community. Sukey Tarr worked as a child psychologist in the UK and Hong Kong, in child welfare in Australia, and as a staff training and development manager, before beginning her career in research. As an independent research consultant she has been involved in a number of national research studies that have evaluated the services provided to children in need and their families. Deborah Cleaver is a freelance social researcher. She has been involved in a number of research studies over the past three years, specializing in quantitative methods.
