The purpose of this project is to reveal in narrative format the experiences of a child growing up in a home in which domestic violence was present. The development and role of resilience and its impact on positive coping strategies, personal development, and career path is discussed. A thorough literature review examines the impact of domestic violence exposure on children and its long-term and short-term effects. Critiques of other narratives are discussed as well as the relevance of narrative writing to social work practice. Implications for child welfare workers and other helping professionals are suggested.
