Child Abuse & the Intersection of Domestic Violence: Building Resiliency
How Does Domestic Violence Affect Children?
Please read the fact sheet below for information on focusing on your child’s strengths (resilience building).
Regarding building the resilience of children, Department of Child Protection and Permanency (DCP&P) uses the Five Protective Factors model:
- Parental Resilience
- Social Connections
- Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development
- Concrete Support in Times of Need
- Social-Emotional Competence of Children
Children who have at least one supportive, nurturing adult; opportunity to socialize with peers and participate in after school activities; have parents who understand and are responsive to their needs; have parents who have their own social networks and people that they can rely on in times of strife; and appropriate emotional outlets – have increased resiliency because all of these are resiliency builders.
