CC 0312 Supporting Children through Family Violence

Family violence is an issue that touches all members of the family.  Children who live in a home where an individual has been violent and/or abusive are affected in one way or another.  We see children resist violence and express their emotions through their demeanour, behaviours, and play.  This session will provide some insight and a chance to develop a better understanding of the complex dynamics of family violence, how it affects children and how to provide safe and positive supports to the family.
