School Counseling Prevention and Intervention for Child Witnesses of Intimate Partner Violence
Buser, Juleen K.; Saponara, Erin
Journal of School Counseling, v9 n8 2011
Children who witness intimate partner violence (IPV) often suffer a range of physical, behavioral, emotional, and familial consequences (Holt, Buckley, & Whelan, 2008). School counselors may be in a key position to implement prevention programs around this issue, identify children who have witnessed IPV, and to engage in intervention efforts. Thus, school counselors need increased knowledge about the impact of IPV on child witnesses. In addition to summarizing some research on the impact of IPV on child witnesses, the following article will discuss prevention and intervention efforts which school counselors can utilize to assist students in combating the deleterious effects of witnessing violence in the home.
