children exposure to domestic violence

15.5 million children in the U.S. live in families in which violence between partners occurred at least once in the past year. Exposure to traumatic events can leave everyone with many uncertainties about how to keep all members of the family safe and what to do next. We all need reliable information, practical tools, and pragmatic guidance to help families prevent violence and reduce the negative impacts of exposure to domestic violence. The Safe Start Center's Toolkit for Family Advocates is a collection of resources for parents, extended family members, and other professionals interacting with vulnerable families who wish to learn more about the prevalence and negative consequences of children's exposure to domestic violence and learn ways to be helpful.
