Protecting Children from Domestic Violence

Many families come to the attention of the child welfare system because of domestic violence. Research shows that about half of male batterers also frequently abuse their children, and women who have been hit by their husbands are twice as likely to hit a child. In this issue, batterers, victims and children who witnessed violence describe the steps they took to find safety and their processes of recovering from the effects of violence.
