This resource is the seventh in a series of seven handbooks called "A Full and Candid Account". The focus here is on children who are potential witnesses in domestic violence cases. Their names may be on a witness list because they gave a police statement during the investigation. SOme are also victims themselves of child abuse. We also discuss teenaged complainants in intimate violence cases, who are another type of "child witnesses." For the children and teenagers, these cases present both the typical challenges for court witnesses as well as pressures unique to offences occurring within the family context. You will find here information on how domestic violence is understood by children, an overview of the concept of domestic violence court, FAQs, questions children may ask, and suggestions on how to support complainant parents.
