Understanding the Impact of Domestic Violence on Children (Part A & B) – 2 sessions
This is a 2 part Online Workshop, you will be required to attend both sessions
For many years children were viewed as silent witnesses to the trauma which was going on within their homes. Some even considered that children could live in these homes and not be impacted. Research indicates an alarming prevalence of domestic violence in our society and a potentially harmful impact on children. For these reasons, it is important for those workers who encounter children in their work roles to have some insight into domestic violence and its impact on children.
The workshop will look at:
- How children attempt to make sense of the violence that they witness;
- The impact can living with domestic violence can have on the child’s physical and mental health;
- Some of the behaviours that a child might exhibit when witnessing domestic violence;
- The link between living with domestic violence, trauma and early brain development, and
- How workers can support vulnerable children where domestic violence has been an experience.
REGISTER NOW! PLACES ARE STRICTLY LIMITED TO ENSURE THAT YOU EXPERIENCE A HIGH LEVEL OF ENGAGEMENT AND INTERACTIVITY.
