Impact of a Batterer: Domestic Violence in the Lives of Children (Morning Session)

This session provides an overview of how the batterer and their tactics create traumatic experiences, grief, and loss in children and teens’ lives. You will explore trauma-informed approaches in communicating with children along with their parents. Highlights will include how a batterer’s tactics toward the whole family impact the survivor’s emotional and physical safety feelings. Helpers will better understand how a batterer deprives their child of empathy and consistency, sabotages the parenting role, and creates trauma and chronic stress experiences. Participants will learn trauma-informed approaches in allying with both youth and parent survivors. The resources and handouts shared will enhance your work with young people and their parents.
