Spotlight on Domestic Violence

Exposure to violence in the home can contribute to behavioral, social, or emotional problems in children. Some families may also experience the co-occurrence of domestic/intimate partner violence and child maltreatment. This month's CBX features resources to help professionals better serve children and families in domestic violence situations.
