20 Facts for Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2020

Resources / Fact Sheet / 20 Facts for Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2020

For our 2020 Domestic Violence Awareness Month Fact Sheet, the Resource Center on Domestic Violence: Child Protection and Custody (RCDV: CPC), a project of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ), seeks to honor survivors and their families who are experiencing co-occurring domestic violence and child maltreatment by exploring its prevalence and risk factors, its effects on child outcomes, and protective factors that promote resilience. The facts in this factsheet were adapted from an article published in the RCDV: CPC’s special issue of the Juvenile and Family Court Journal. On behalf of the staff of the RCDV: CPC, and all of the members of the NCJFCJ, we hope this fact sheet is helpful to your ongoing work with survivors and their families.
