Supporting Children and Families Experiencing Domestic Violence—Shelby Bergeson

Court statistics show that children are present during domestic or intimate partner violence incidents in 36% of cases; of those children who were present, 60% directly witnessed the violence. While domestic violence and family violence can be a very sensitive topics it's important to know the indicators, the cycle of abuse, how to respond if you are confided in, and how you can support the families you work with during the aftermath. This session will touch on all the basics with an emphasis on helping the children who have experienced that trauma.
