An investigation into practitioner’s perceptions on the challenges young children face when witnessing violence at home
MetadataShow full item record
High on political agenda, domestic violence and its consequential child protection issues, this undergraduate study investigates practitioner’s perceptions on the challenges young children face when witnessing violence at home. Through a mixed method approach of semi-structured interviews and questionnaires the results highlights a need for more training and funding to support practitioners in order for them to protect children competently. The results also highlight the greater awareness needed on the effects that witnessing violence has on a child’s holistic development and educational achievements. Practitioners talk about their perceptions and experiences of working with children and the consequences of witnessing violence. The study concludes more research is needed on the short or long term lasting effects on children who witness violence at home and a particular focus on comprehensive training for all practitioners who work with children.
