Abstract:Based on a recognition that men's abuse of women has an impact on children, there is much that social work can do to address the problem of children living with domestic violence. Using the findings of a study on children's experiences of parental separation and divorce in Botswana, this paper focuses on children's experiences of violence in the family and on perceptions of how the violence has affected them. It concludes with a discussion of the implications for social work. Bibliogr., notes. [Journal abstract]
