Kim and Islay’s book ‘Parenting a Violent Child’ was published in 2015. It is a self-help book that uses the setting of a parenting group to provide information and support to those living with challenging behaviour. The book covers the possible causes of Child to Parent Violence (CPV) and provides practical help and advice. While the focus of the book is on CPV, the information contained in the examples is able to shine a light on both parent and child behaviour whether or not there is evidence of CPV. The APS online face-to-face programme, with the book, provides powerful insights and useful and effective tools for change.
