The Children's Center for Family Violence is our partnership with Connecticut Children's Medical Center. Established in 2016, the Center aims to reduce the impact of family violence on children through a trauma-informed, multidisciplinary, multiagency approach.
Housed within Connecticut Children's Office for Community Child Health, the Center's activities will be focused on facilitating dissemination of existing evidence-based practices in child-serving sectors; developing and evaluating best practices and sharing learnings with the field; and educating and training stakeholders.
Our core strategies for impact include:
- Research & Evaluation: Develop and evaluate trauma-informed, culturally relevant best practices.
- Education & Training: Engage community members, students, and professionals from multiple disciplines to better understand and implement best practices.
- Clinical Care: Develop, implement, and promote evidence-based best practices in victim advocacy, mental health, and medical care.
- Public Policy & Advocacy: Advance the field of family violence by providing public officials and policymakers with insight into evidence-based best practice to inform policy.
