New book examines violence in fathering
1 June 2011
A new book by Dr Lynne Harne, a Research Associate at the Centre for Family Policy and Child Welfare in the School for Policy Studies, focuses on fathering and domestic violence.
Violent Fathering and the Risks to Children, published by The Policy Press, examines fathers’ perceptions of their domestic violence and its impact on children, their relationships with children and their parenting practices.
This is the first UK book to focus specifically on violent fathering, and discusses original research in the context of domestic violence and emerging practice literature to address the problem.
