Webinar Description

Awareness about the effects of Domestic Violence (DV)/Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) on victims should extend beyond providing therapeutic support solely to adult survivors. Many studies have proven that children exposed to DV can be impacted negatively whether in the short-term and/or long-term. Children, while resilient, are a vulnerable population and are often identified as ‘silent victims’ or survivors of DV.  These young survivors experience a realm of emotions and physical responses relative to their exposure to DV.  In the blink of an eye, their norm changes and there is little to no time to adjust.
