Growing Together Focus Groups on Domestic Violence and Mother-Child Relationships

In 2011, WCADV conducted six adult and two youth focus groups at DV programs in eight locations around Wisconsin. The purpose of these groups was to understand more about how DV has affected mother-child relationships and learn more about what these mothers and children need from DV programs. The focus grops were supplemented with information gathered from children in support groups in local domestic violence programs.  Here are the final reports from the focus groups and the children’s support groups.

Guide to Training New Children and Youth Advocates

The guide offers an introduction to the basic knowledge and skills that are important for children and youth (CY) advocates in Wisconsin domestic violence programs. It is a training tool for new CY advocates and their supervisors to use together. The guide is divided into two sections. The “Knowledge” section includes topics that children and youth advocates should become familiar with. These topics are arranged in approximate order of their importance to the job. The “Skills” section includes skills needed to do the job. Each topic contains a link to one or more free, web-based resources that provide newly-hired children and youth advocates with a basic foundation in each of these important job-related topics. Suggestions for using the guide are included.
