The experience of family violence is a significant source of trauma for children. This workshop in exploring recent research and knowledge, provides insight into how family violence shapes children’s development. The knowledge base of neurobiology, attachment and disruption is integrated to provide a summary of the impacts on children’s brain, body, emotion behaviour and relationships. It draws on this to outline a specific practice framework for responding to children and their families.

.

Opportunities will be provided to explore specific and practical principles, and creative strategies for promoting recovery for children who have experienced family violence.

.
