Living with domestic abuse in a climate of uncertainty and fear can affect children in many different ways as they grow up.
Parenting in the aftermath of domestic abuse
Many issues arise for women who are coping with parenting in the aftermath of domestic abuse.
- Re-establishing parental control in the aftermath of domestic abuse.
- Establishing violent free homes and interrupting intergenerational violence.
- Learning to navigate access and parenting issues with a violent and emotionally abusive partner.
- Dealing with the negative impact of domestic abuse including impact on children who identify with the abuser and who direct violence and controlling behaviour towards the women.
- Children negatively impacted by the abuse who identify with the women and become her sole source of emotional support.
Focusing on these issues, Parenting in the aftermath of domestic abuse is a six week programme designed to help women create violent free homes, interrupt intergenerational violence and equip women to re-establish parental control.
