The Center for Children and Families in the Justice System has published a new resource for people working with abused women. It is called “Helping Children Thrive/ Supporting Woman Abuse Survivors as Mothers: A Resource to Support Parenting.”

The resource is written for service providers assisting women who have survived abuse. It includes sections describing abused women as mothers, how abusive men parent, ways that abusive men affect family dynamics, the effects of abuse on power and control tactics on mothers, the potential impact of abuse against mothers on children of different ages, and strategies used by young people to cope with violence in their homes.

A free version of the resource is available on the Center’s website.
