Benefits of counselling and talking to children about domestic violence and abuse
Research has shown that children and teenagers living with domestic abuse and violence can have very different reactions to the situation. They create their own views and coping strategies to manage the situation – sometimes resorting to drugs and alcohol and self-harm.
By providing counselling and therapy for a child who is living with domestic violence and abuse it will help the child feel safer, learn that violence is not their fault, learn that violence is not the best way to resolve problems, helps them to feel care for and understood, helps them feel that someone listens to them and that it is ok to talk about feelings.
By denying the situation it makes children believe that violence is normal, blame themselves for the situation, feel lonely, confused and isolated.
