Domestic Violence: When Is It Child Abuse and How Should Communities Respond? (Workshop 150)
Using an interactive format, this workshop examines the effects on children of being exposed to violence in their homes and of being the direct victims themselves of that violence. The discussion addresses the resilience factors, which serve to protect some children from greater harm than others; the responsive behaviors of adult victims of such violence; and the protective actions such parents engage in to protect their children. Presenters suggest responses on the part of the community that can better meet the needs of adult and child victims alike than do some of the more traditional system responses.
