Many children and youth experience domestic violence, which can negatively affect their development, health and wellbeing. The growing number of programs and services for child survivors of domestic violence suggests that there is growing awareness of how domestic violence can impact children. Information about evidence-based and emerging interventions can help to inform domestic violence advocates and other service providers working with survivors to implement, enhance and evaluate best practices.
The Promising Futures National Capacity Building Center carried out a national scan in 2010 to find programs and models that support children’s healing and resilience. The results from this scan are featured on this interactive website and companion publication. In 2017 & 2018, The Promising Futures National Capacity Building Center conducted another scan to update the website and publication on evidence-based and emerging interventions for children exposed to domestic violence. In this webinar, Dr. Linda Chamberlain will provide an overview of some of the more than 20 interventions that were identified during the update of the national scan of best practices. The updated publication will be shared during the webinar and posted on the website afterwards.
After the webinar, participants will be better able to:
Describe three key findings from the update of the national scan of interventions for children exposed to domestic violence.
Identify two trends that emerged in the update of the national scan for interventions for children exposed to domestic violence.
List two practices from interventions identified in the update of the national scan that have relevance to your work.
Access the database of models on the Promising Futures website.
