Research into children’s experiences of domestic abuse has consistently emphasised the importance of providing support to the non-abusive parent (usually the mother) for effective child protection. But what exactly does this involve and why does it seem to be so difficult to achieve? Why does the perpetrator of domestic abuse often become ‘invisible’ in child protection procedures? Participants will:
- Explore how dynamics of domestic abuse constrain mothers’ choices.
- Apply Evan Stark’s theory of coercive control and Michael Johnson’s theory of intimate terrorism to our understanding of mothering in the context of domestic abuse.
- l Investigate methods for supporting mothers in this new framework.
- l Identify potential practice changes that might reflect new understanding.
- Build skills for problem solving how to support mothers using multiagency resources.
