  1. This report drives home (among other things) the impact on children who witness domestic violence in the home. Speaking from personal experience, it has a profound impact!

    • Most of the shelter videos have testimonials from the women’s points-of-view, but I liked that this one was actually filmed giving a childhood survivor of DV point-of-view. So many forget that children raised in this environment actually have very real and very tangible memories (and emotional scars) as a result of what their parent endured. The abuse victim is not the only one victimized. Even worse, the children in that environment are caught in the middle and have absolutely no control over anything that is happening around them.
