The recommendations of this guide were created to help guide intimate partner violence (IPV) advocates in their daily work with mothers and families.

“The recommendations are drawn from a review of core components of evidence-based therapeutic intervention models for children exposed to IPV including Child Parent Psychotherapy, TraumaFocused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and the Kid’s Club. Information about these evidence based models and other research on services for children and youth can be found on the Promising Futures: Best Practices for Serving Children, Youth, and Parents Experiencing Domestic Violence website. There are several ways these recommendations may be useful. Advocates may use them to assess areas in which they already excel, and determine the areas in which they would like to further develop. Program staff may wish to adapt the focus on a single child or family to work with a group of children.”
