Supporting Children Impacted by Domestic Abuse

Early trauma informed support to help children impacted by domestic abuse

The Programme for Children & Young People

This programme has been put together by clinical and trauma informed experts to ensure children impacted by domestic abuse are able to access early trauma informed help. Each session has been carefully crafted so children can learn about how their body and brain works together, and what happens when they are feeling safe and unsafe. Children will learn discreet strategies they can use to help their body and brain feel calm. 

The impact data and case studies demonstrates that this programme makes a statistical significant difference to children's lives.  

The programme is suitable for children aged 5-16 years and can be delivered on a 1:1 or group basis. There are 6 sessions in this programme and each session  is 45-60 minutes. The impact of the programme is measured using the Emotional Awareness Questionnaire pre and post programme. 

Facilitators will have access to all of the pre-assessment documents, session manual, trauma informed animations and worksheets. You can print and download the files. Everything you need is at your finger tips. The unlimited clinical consultation provides support for facilitators. 

Please note:

The programme does not ask children to talk about their experiences of domestic abuse and there is no reference to domestic abuse in the video animations or worksheets. This is a pure trauma informed programme that supports children to learn how they can help their body and brain to feel safe. 

Facilitators are asked not to ask children about their experiences of domestic abuse or re-tell their story at any time. This re-traumatises children. Please follow your safeguarding procedures if a child makes any disclosures.
