Building Promising Futures: Guidelines for Enhancing Response of Domestic Violence Programs to Children & Youth
This manual presents guidelines to improve the services to and success of children exposed to domestic violence. There is increasing evidence—both research-based and practice-based—of the strong relationship between the health and well-being of children and that of their protective parents or caretakers. Many domestic violence programs across the country have made great strides in focusing more attention on children and youth over the last 15 years, including those supported in 2005-2008 with funds generated by the Family Violence Stamp. However, others may require additional support and guidance to fully embrace and implement comprehensive and integrated approaches to working with children affected by violence within their families.
This manual is a companion to Developing Outcome Measures for Domestic Violence Programs’ Work with Children and Youth.
