Children's Center on Family Violence


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.
