Domestic and family violence is a major health and welfare issue occurring across age groups, cultural demographics and communities, however it predominantly affects women and children.
More than two-thirds (68%) of mothers who had children in their care when they experienced violence from their previous partner said their children had seen or heard the violence.
Children who are experiencing or have experienced family violence can be affected physically, emotionally and psychologically.
In collaboration with industry professionals, Criterion Conferences have developed this printable Quick Reference Guide to Children experiencing Family & Domestic Violence. This resource has been designed for professionals working with children to aid in identification of behavioural and physical indicators, as well as what to do when a child reveals their experience.
