The responses of social services to child abuse arising in the context of domestic violence remain some of the most contentious and controversial in this area. This report explores the problems and opportunities presented for child protection workers responding to child abuse that occurred in the context of violence towards the child(ren)'s mother. This particular aspect of domestic violence intervention is frequently overlooked as issues such as policing, child contact, interagency working and offender programmes have gained precedence in the development of intervention strategies. The report recognizes the difficulties of developing sensitive child welfare practice in an area where there has been a traditional separation of services for women and services for children, and provides good practice examples for overcoming the traditional difficulties in this area.
