RELEASE: NRCDV PROVIDES RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SERVING ADULT CHILDREN EXPOSED TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE  (APRIL 18 2016)
“Most of our society’s children are exposed to violence in their daily lives. And most of us grow up to lead successful and well adjusted lives. Given the opportunity to help build this capacity for resilience in all children exposed to trauma, why wouldn’t we?”

RESPONDING TO THE LONG-TERM NEEDS OF ADULT CHILDREN EXPOSED TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: EXPLORING THE CONNECTION TO SUICIDE RISK (APRIL 2016)
This Technical Assistance Guidance, a product of the Adult Children Exposed to Domestic Violence (ACE-DV) Leadership Forum, discusses the impact of domestic violence exposure through the lifespan and provides recommendations to better serve adult children exposed to domestic violence (ACE-DV). The purpose of this guidance is to raise awareness of the potentially adverse consequences of domestic violence on an often-overlooked population and provide strategies to reduce risk factors and promote resilience.

  • Both of you have equal say and respected boundaries.
  • Your partner understands that you need to study or hang out with friends or family.

#TeenDVMonth Blogfest 2013: "Between Friends Poster Design Contest"

In recognition of TDV Awareness Month, Between Friends sponsored a poster design contest for young people throughout the city of Chicago. Classrooms and after-school groups were invited to create posters that promoted healthy relationships.  More specifically, the contest was centered on the importance of equality in relationships, and thus aptly named the Equal Love Poster Design Contest.  Between Friends chose this theme because of the importance of discussing healthy relationship characteristics with young people in conjunction with education about the warning signs of abuse. Voting for finalists took place over the past two weeks on the Between Friends REACH Facebook page. The winning poster, submitted by Waters Elementary, will be professionally printed and distributed to schools all over the city for display. Additionally, the top three winners are receiving prizes including gift cards for the teachers and a pizza party for the first place classroom. Please take a moment to check out the Equal Love Poster Design Contest photo album on Facebook to view all of the terrific entries to this year’s contest.
