Learning to Listen, Learning to Help
Understanding Woman Abuse and Its Effects on Children
by Linda Baker & Alison Cunningham (2005)
A resource for students (and volunteers) in the helping professions funded by the Ontario Women's Directorate.
A concise handbook for students and volunteers entering the helping professions, to prepare them to recognize and respond to families in which there is or was violence at home. Topics include background material on the dynamics of woman abuse, the concept of power and control, facts and figures, how to support women and help them find appropriate resources, how children are affected by violence, how children cope with violence at home, how to respond to child disclosure of abuse and neglect, standards of professional conduct, taking stock of your own attitudes, and suggestions for how you can make a difference to end violence. In one place, students will find all the relevant and up-to-date information and are directed to easily accessible resources for further study.
