Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to examine the writer's personal experience as a child being exposed to domestic violence. Narratives were reviewed to form the basis for a well-written self-study project. Issues that arise in the mother-daughter relationship as a result of the abuse are discussed. Coping strategies as well as resilience as a result of religion and spirituality in the life of the writer are also explored. Literature was reviewed on the topics of domestic violence, the risks of child maltreatment, resilience, and religion and spirituality. Implications for child welfare social workers as well as other social workers are also discussed.
