The Children Are Not OK: Impact of Domestic Violence

The Children Are Not OK: Impact of Domestic Violence

Jane Straub, Victim Assistance Specialist

Length: 1: 01

Children are not immune or shielded from domestic violence. Not only do millions of children witness the abuse of their mother, but many also experience child abuse themselves.This presentation will discuss the prevalence of domestic violence and its relationship with child maltreatment. It will also explain how these behaviors permeate the day to day climate of the home, which can lead to the abuse cycle being handed down to the next generation. Identification of harm will be discussed as well as strategies to support the mother and children. Skill building and increasing resiliency will be addressed.

Due to the recent move of all NCPTC and JWRC programs to the Zero Abuse Project, we are currently conducting a re-organization of our On-Demand Webinar platform. We anticipate being able to re-launch this valuable educational resource by the end of March. Please check back later this month.
