Review of Interventions for Children Exposed to Violence
FUTURES received funding for a technical assistance and resource development project to address CEDV from the Department of Health and Human Services, Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Expanding Services to Children and Youth Program. One of the goals of the project was to help domestic violence programs and allied organizations serving children and youth access information on the best practices for CEDV and facilitate their capacity to translate this evidence on effective interventions into service delivery. To achieve this goal, a two-step process was employed. The first step was to conduct a national scan of interventions for CEDV. The second step was to organize the findings into a web-based, user-friendly format that would be accessible to domestic violence advocates and other service providers working with children and families exposed to domestic violence. The purpose of this paper is to describe the methods used to conduct the national scan of interventions for CEDV and to provide an overview of its findings.
