Living with domestic abuse forces children and young people to develop resilience (unconscious coping strategies) that keep them safe.

This is within the context of unequal power divides and extremely controlling behaviour by the perpetrator.

However this resilience based on risk and survival can have negative long term affects. This is likely to be particularly influential in how the young person develops beliefs and attitudes about themselves, the world around them and differences with gender roles.

The aim of the group is to help children and young people to come to terms with their experiences and to develop positive lifestyle and coping strategies.

What people say about this programme

“From the first session the children absolutely blossomed, they opened up and talked about their thoughts and feelings and it was clear to see how much they enjoyed finding their voices.”

” I think the material covered is very important and they clearly learned a lot of useful skills and tools to keep them safe and deal with their experiences.”

“I am a child support working in a women’s refuge and have worked alongside many professionals supporting children who have experienced domestic abuse and this course is by far the most effective support I have found available for children who have experienced domestic violence.”
