Abstract

This article discusses the existence of both spouse abuse and child abuse within families. Recent research suggests that practitioners have often missed the coexistence of these problems within their caseloads. Practice implications for both domestic violence service providers and child welfare professionals are outlined. Recommendations for changes in assessment procedures, treatment planning, and implementation are made.
