Project Description

Practice Notes #29—Intimate Partner Violence in Child Welfare, Summer 2017
Authors: Renner, L.M., Anderson, L., & Barry, K.

An estimated 7 million children live in families in which severe intimate partner violence (IPV) occurred in the past year1 and one-third of all families involved with Child Protection Services (CPS) experienced IPV in the year preceding their involvement in the child welfare system.2 Considering the pronounced co-occurrence, it is important that child welfare workers have knowledge and awareness of children’s exposure to IPV.
