The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund the enhancement of an existing program for battered women and their children. The enhanced program would provide individual and group bibliotherapy services for children, between the ages of 9 and 12. Age-appropriate books on domestic violence will be used by a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) as an attempt to help children who have been exposed to domestic violence to gain a better understanding of themselves, their experiences and domestic violence in general.
The aim of the program is to assist children in developing healthy coping skills to manage the ways in which domestic violence has impacted them. It is the goal that the program will help reduce the negative effects of exposure to Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) on program participants such as delinquency, aggression, depression, anxiety, withdrawal, and isolation.
