What Is Child Welfare? A Guide for Domestic Violence Services Advocates
Provides an overview of basic child welfare services, describes how domestic violence (DV) services and child welfare (CW) professionals can support one another’s efforts in working with families, and lists resources for more information. Child welfare professionals and domestic violence advocates recognize the common co-occurrence of domestic violence and child maltreatment, and acknowledgement of this significant overlap has led to more collaboration between these fields.
