The Impact of Domestic Violence On Children

The National Child Traumatic Stress Network, United States

This two-page fact sheet explores the impact of domestic violence on children, and how to support them.

‘Children who live in families where there is domestic violence can have difficulties with their emotions; their behaviours; their relationships with others; and their learning. These difficulties can go on for some time and can get worse over time, especially if there is not an available adult who recognises the impact and takes steps to help the child.’
