Project Description

Children living with family violence is very common in the Australian community and is associated with a wide range of emotional, behavioural, social, academic and physical problems. There has been limited research in this area when compared with child abuse studies. This project aims to identify protective factors for children living with their parent's domestic violence that make them feel safer and more resilient. Child centred responses and interventions by professionals they come in contact with will be the main outcome. Signficance of these findings is that children's missing voices will be heard and the outcomes will inform government policy as well as educational and counselling interventions for health and welfare professionals.
