Partnering with Families to Address Domestic Violence

A strength-based approach to talking with families about domestic violence requires trust and mutual respect between program staff and families. Program staff who are aware of best practices for receiving disclosures of domestic violence and providing appropriate and empathic responses are in a better position to maintain the trust and respect they have built with families.

This section offers resources that program staff can use as a guide to talk with families about healthy relationships and domestic violence in a trauma-informed way.
