Child-Centred Approaches to Ending Family Violence

Child-Centred Approaches to Ending Family Violence

Breaking intergenerational cycles of trauma & abuse

Children are often the silent victims of family violence; while they are not always heard or seen, they are always impacted by it. More than 68% of mothers who had children in their care when they experienced family violence said their children had seen or heard the violence.

Whether a direct victim or witness, the short and long term effects of family violence on a child can have a significant impact on their development, health, wellbeing and relationships. Still, too often, the voices and perspectives of children are not included in the design and responses of systems and services.

The Child-Centred Approaches to Ending Family Violence conference will bring together senior leaders and practitioners from across Australia to discuss how the sector can be more child-centred in their responses to family violence in policy, service delivery and practice.
