This resource draws together, in one place, information from the best and latest research for professionals and volunteers who help women and children. The purpose is to examine the context in which children's lives are impacted. Topics addressed include definitions, statistics, impacts on a mother, myths and realities about woman abuse. Actions that are needed include responding to child disclosures, reporting child maltreatment and ways to support women as parents. Understanding the context lays a foundation for understanding the impact woman abuse has on her children.
The work of LFCC focuses on helping children and families to be resilient in overcoming their challenges, to gain strength to move towards a brighter future. Resilience allows all people to achieve, to overcome barriers, to “bounce back”, and to be the best that they can be.
