Two New Resources
Aug 17, 2009
A new curriculum can help trainers of foster and adoptive parents and kinship caregivers promote resilience among children who have been exposed to violence. Produced by the Family Violence Prevention Fund with support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, Connect: Supporting Children Exposed to Domestic Violence is a basic training session on the dynamics of domestic violence, the impact of exposure to domestic violence on children, and strategies for supporting children who have been exposed to violence. It includes a trainer’s guide and toolkit with a curriculum, power point, mini-magazines and optional training videos.

Violence Against Women: Classic Papers, edited by Raquel Kennedy Bergen, Jeffrey L. Edleson and Claire M. Renzetti back in 2005, is now available free, online at the Minnesota Center Against Violence and Abuse (MINCAVA). The original content includes personal reflections by some of the world’s leading researchers and advocates for battered women on their early work. Find it on MINCAVA’s site here.
