Little Eyes, Little Ears: How Violence Against A Mother Shapes Children as they Grow (2007)

A new resource developed by the Centre for Children and Families in the Justice System with funding from the National Clearinghouse on Family Violence in Ottawa, a division of the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Topics addressed include what children might feel, think and do during violent incidents against their mothers, roles they might adopt, strategies of coping and survival, and how violence may be experienced by children from infancy to adolescence. It is aimed at professionals, students and volunteers working with children and women helping them to support women as parents and respond to child disclosures.

This is a concise source for the latest research for anyone wanting to understand how children experience violence against their mothers and how those experiences may shape them as they grow.
