This year our program focused on the impact that domestic violence has on child victim/witnesses. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that there is a 45% to 60% chance of co-occurring child abuse where there is violence occurring in the home between partners, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have reported that in homes where violence between partners occurs, children witness 68% to 80% of domestic assaults. It is reported that “the psychological aftermath of exposure to domestic violence can include fear of harm or abandonment, excessive worry or sadness, guilt, inability to experience empathy or guilt, habitual lying, low frustration tolerance, emotional distancing, poor judgment, shame, and fear about the future.”
