Children and Youth
Domestic Violence FREE
Children and Youth Domestic Violence Free, a project of the SFDPH’s Community Health Education Section, was funded by the State Department of Health Services Maternal Child Health Branch, Domestic Violence Section.
Through Children and Youth DV FREE, staff provided community training from 2000 to 2005, particularly to providers who work with parents. We focused on the effects on children and youth of witnessing domestic violence. Our long-term goal was to change how people in San Francisco learn about, and act upon, domestic and family violence.
The project developed a curriculum for the training, “Effects on Children of Witnessing Intimate Partner Violence (IPV),” link to which you see below. It contains a table of contents, the three parts of the curriculum, and their respective handouts. See below also for an Acrobat version of a PowerPoint slide presentation that may be used in the training. Providers are welcome to use this curriculum to train their staff and parents, and to adapt it to their own circumstances. There is no charge, but please credit the San Francisco Department of Public Health, Community Health Education Section. For providers in San Francisco, SafeStart continues to provide trainings on issues related to intimate partner violence.
