Registration is closed


Presenter: Jeffrey L. Edleson, MSSW, PhD

Moderator: Joan Berman, LCSW


Prof. Edleson will review some of the basic research on children’s exposure to adult domestic violence, their involvement in these events and the level of known co-occurring child maltreatment and domestic violence in families. He will review trends in legislation and programs responding to these children and their families and draw on his four decades of extensive national and international work on changing policies and practices in response to children exposed to violence and their families. The impact of the pandemic and how it has affected children exposed to family violence will also be discussed.

Please note:  This workshop will not be recorded due to the confidential nature of the content.


Participants will:

  1. Identify how children experience adult domestic violence.
  2. Point to research findings on the impact of such violence on children.
  3. Recall how child welfare and domestic violence agencies can collaborate more successfully.
  4. Identify at least three interventions with and/or issues in providing service to children and their parents.
  5. Identify at least three ways that the pandemic has affected children exposed to domestic violence.
