Domestic Violence Adult Survivor Group

Domestic Violence Adult Survivor Group

Why a support group for domestic violence survivors at the Child Advocacy Center in Anderson County?

Research shows that large numbers of children are exposed to domestic violence….and this results in their world feeling unsafe and insecure.

While each situation is different, providing education and support to adult survivors of domestic violence can help them support their children by increasing awareness of:

  • the impact of the domestic violence on their children
  • how the domestic violence has affected their parenting
  • signs to watch for in their children
  • responding appropriately to their children
  • finding specialized help such as getting an Order of Protection, or finding a safe shelter

The Child Advocacy Center uses a twelve session curriculum from MINCAVA. Not a “parenting” curriculum, each session has a focus on domestic violence and corresponding parenting issues. Participants have time to “check in” each week.
