Reading List

This is in no way definitive, but is a place to find fuller references for the articles, journals, research papers etc quoted elsewhere on the website. I have omitted many important early publications simply to make it manageable. I will be adding to it as I find new material, and will be happy to consider anything sent to me for inclusion. With a few exceptions I have confined the list to papers published in English. You will find a wealth of research from Spain, and other Spanish speaking countries, in particular and I would recommend searching via for these, or by using bibliographies of other papers.

  1. Lot of work gone into compiling that, Helen…Great work. Thank you.

  2. SO helpful. Thank you, Helen.

  3. Hi, can I find the list of different titles, phrases and acronyms for child to parent violence and abuse anywhere in your books?
    Thank you

    • I am not sure where to send you for an exhaustive list, but you will find some discussion in the introduction to my own book, Child to Parent Violence and Abuse: A practitioner’s guide to working with families. Many other papers and books will include a similar discussion. I hope you are able to find what you need.
