Impacts of DFV on Children

This summary is designed for practitioners and policy-makers who want to know more about ANROWS’s research on domestic and family violence (DFV) in Australia. The information has been collated primarily from research projects funded by ANROWS in 2014 and published in 2017. It is not intended to be a comprehensive report on research related to children and violence. 

The summary outlines the major issues identified in the ANROWS research relevant to children, the factors preventing effective service delivery and the policy and practice changes recommended by the researchers. It concludes with future research directions.

A list of additional relevant resources is also included.
