Stepping up for kids: Understanding and supporting children who have experienced domestic and family violence

Australian Child and Adolescent Trauma, Loss and Grief Network (ACATLGN), Australia, 2016

This online booklet is for professionals, or any adults who want to better understand how to support children who have experienced domestic violence. It includes recent statistics and explores the impact on children, addressing common myths and fears regarding this vital issue.

Domestic and family violence can be more damaging to young people whom might not necessarily be at the very centre of the violence; and such experiences can go on to shape children’s still‑developing behavioural, emotional, biological and physical systems.
