Spotlight on Domestic Violence and Child Welfare

This issue of CBX highlights the intersection of domestic violence and child welfare. Many children involved with the child welfare system are victims of domestic violence and abuse, which can lead to detrimental consequences for children, youth, and families, such as trauma, behavioral issues, and disrupted brain development. Because many child welfare cases overlap with cases of violence in the home, it is important to understand the intersection of domestic violence and child welfare involvement. Read a message from Associate Commissioner Aysha E. Schomburg about the importance of acting without delay when working to keep children safe and in their homes. This issue also includes valuable resources for professionals and the families they serve.
