NCFV E-Bulletin March 2010: Children Exposed to Family Violence

This edition of the National Clearinghouse on Family Violence (NCFV) E-bulletin focuses on children exposed to family violence. This refers to children and adolescents who see, hear and are aware of violence/abuse occurring between caregivers (or a caregiver and his/her partner). This e-bulletin provides information on the extent and impact of children's exposure to family violence, and highlights Canadian research and resources addressing this issue.

The NCFV E-bulletin is a bi-monthly newsletter for those interested in family violence prevention. It is produced by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), on behalf of the Family Violence Initiative (FVI) of the Government of Canada. Content is provided as an information-sharing service; inclusion does not represent endorsement by PHAC or FVI member departments.
