Children’s experience of domestic abuse can cause both short and long term cognitive, behavioural, and emotional effects, and impact on attachment.
Each child will respond differently to the trauma of witnessing domestic abuse depending on a range of factors including, but not limited to, sex, race, culture, age, and stage of development. Domestic abuse is also often seen as an attack on the mother-child relationship, and therefore affects attachment and impacts on positive parenting strategies.
Join the CEDAR Co-ordinators and Fife Violence Against Women Partnership (FVAWP) to explore the impact that domestic abuse can have in the early years. This training aims to provide participants with:
An understanding of the dynamics and impact of domestic abuse on mothers, babies and toddlers
The ability to identify indicators of domestic abuse
An understanding of the links between domestic abuse and attachment
The knowledge to make explicit links between domestic abuse and the GIRFEC Framework
