Children who are witness to domestic violence experience shame, guilt and isolation. Parents who are victims of domestic violence often struggle to provide a safe, nurturing environment for their children. CALM offers multi-family group treatment that provides group therapy for mothers and their children who have witnessed domestic violence. Mothers attend a mothers group, while the children attend child groups with children of a similar age. Once a month, the mothers and children come together for a multifamily group.
