Addressing Domestic Violence within Home Visitation Settings: Children Exposed to Domestic Violence & Its Impact on Parenting


Rebecca Levenson, Laurie K. Crawford, PJ West

Date Recorded:

February 19, 2013


Parenting is personal, subjective and can be difficult—especially if there is a history of violence or current violence. This webinar will introduce the issue of adults’ childhood experiences with violence. We will discuss the role of the home visitor in talking with parents about their childhood experiences, using the Loving Parents, Loving Kids safety card. We will explain how talking with parents about their experiences as children can be a platform for discussing safe homes, safe strategies for caring for children, and what it means to be in a healthy relationship.
