Domestic Abuse has a major effect on the health and welfare of Children and Young People. Studies have shown that, in 90% of domestic abuse cases, children are in the same or next room when abuse occurs. The significance of this harm is now recognised as an issue that not only places Children and Young People at immediate risk but can lead to both short and long-term consequences.
This course explores domestic abuse and the impact it can have on Children and Young People, advising on:
How to enhance resilience,
How best to intervene, and
Why it should be considered Child Abuse

- Anxiety and Depression,
- Problems at school, such as truanting, and
