Addressing the Needs of Young Children Living with Domestic Violence (Workshop 101)
Research studies of children exposed to war, abuse, and other catastrophic events indicate that such events can threaten children's emotional, physical, and social development. This presentation will address the latest research on the impact of violence on young children as well as describe lessons learned by the different efforts to train teachers, early childhood providers, foster care parents, domestic violence shelters staff, and other professionals to help children and families cope with the effects of violence.
