Research summary: The impacts of domestic and family violence on children (2nd ed.)
This updated research summary collates ANROWS and wider research on the impacts of domestic and family violence (DFV) on children into key findings to support practitioners and policymakers.
It outlines the major issues relevant to children, the factors preventing effective service delivery, and the policy and practice changes recommended by the researchers.
This research summary draws from two ANROWS projects that focused on children and families:
- a study on the relationship between DFV support services for women and their children and statutory child protection (CP) organisations – the PATRICIA project (Humphreys and Healey, 2017)
- a study on the impact of DFV on parent–child relationships (Kaspiew et al., 2017).
This summary is designed for practitioners and policymakers who want to know more about ANROWS research on the impacts of DFV on children.
