Children's Needs - Parenting Capacity
The Impact of Parental Mental Illness, Problem Alcohol and Drug Use, and Domestic Violence on Children's Development
- H. Cleaver, I. Unell, and J. Aldgate - Department of Health
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
How do parental mental illness, problem alcohol or drug use and domestic violence impact on children's development? Do children always suffer as a result?
An exploration of the research literature shows that these potential problems affect children differently depending on their age and individual circumstances. While some children grow up apparently unscathed, others exhibit emotional and behavioural disorders.
This knowledge can inform practitioners undertaking assessments of the needs of children and their families and effective service responses.
This book is essential reading for practitioners, managers and policy makers concerned with improving the outcomes for children and families who are experiencing such problems.
