Safe - the domestic abuse quarterly
Issue 19, Autumn 2006
Good intentions - disabling realities
Dr. Jill Radford summarises a study of domestic violence and disability, exploring the conceptual issues involved, the barriers they produce and recommendations for the future.
Just the Domestic?
Dr. Emma Williamson illustrates the wider services provided by the domestic violence sector in England, 2005/06, and challenges the view that it is only concerned with ‘domestic’ abuse.

Although the effects of domestic violence on women and on children are widely documented, the impact of domestic violence on the relationship and communication between mothers and children is only recently being highlighted. The authors report on recently completed research.
