Family-Centered Toolkit for Domestic Violence Programs

Background

Historically, the domestic violence (DV) field has separated services for adults and services for children and youth, rather than taking an integrated approach that centers the relationships between adult survivors and their children. The Family-Centered Toolkit helps programs envision and implement an integrated approach that supports parent-child relationships and families with a range of culturally responsive, trauma-informed, and developmentally sensitive services.

In response to the highly varied, complex situations and needs presented by caregivers, children, and families experiencing DV, program staff will find the Family-Centered Toolkit a welcome, step by step guide offering knowledge, best practices, and accessible resources for DV advocates, program staff, and supervisors to enhance and sustain family-centered services within DV programs.
