Description of Resource

"The purpose of this issue brief is to provide information that can be used by F2F grantees to expand, improve and complement their current practices to respond to the needs of families experiencing domestic violence that are in the child welfare system. The dynamics of child maltreatment and domestic violence are varied and complex and no guideline can anticipate every individual child or family's unique circumstances. The safety and protection from imminent harm for all victims must always be the overriding concern." - Publisher's description
