Sometimes children need help or advice to understand and contend with the situations that arise within their lives and the lives of those around them. �Abuse: Sometimes, families hurt� by Yvonne Coppard is a practical, sensitively written and easily accessible guide to a number of such scenarios.

Activities and discussion points mean this is a book that perhaps lends itself most easily to use within the classroom, particularly within Personal, Social and Health Education class contexts. With sections outlining neglect, physical, sexual and emotional abuse, self-harm, domestic violence, parents with alcohol or drug dependency, parents with mental illness and finally racism in the family, the book is a useful reference point for all manner of abusive situations and offers practical guidance and advice as well as detailing information about where further support is available. This is a book that professionals in the field need to read, hold awareness of and make readily available in some form for young people.
