Course Description

This module 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 how violence against  a  mother can  shape  a  child.  Topics addressed include

  • what children might feel, think and do during violent incidents against  their mothers,
  • roles they might  adopt  before, during or after incidents,
  • strategies of coping and survival, and
  • how  violence  may be  experienced  by children of different ages, from infancy to adolescence.

By  learning  how each child as an individual was shaped by experiences in  his  or her home - and considering important contextual  features  of  family life –

we  can devise ways to help.
