We know children are profoundly impacted by exposure to family violence even when they are not a direct target.

  • Brain Development; affecting cognitive, social, emotional, physical and spiritual development
  • Emotional well-being; children experience increased anxiety and fear and lack a sense of personal safety
  • Ability to learn; children experiencing traumatic events and ongoing family instability can struggle to attend to learning
  • Children who witness violence are more likely to grow up to become victims of abusers.
