With the recognized co-occurrence between child maltreatment and domestic violence, the second edition of Child Protection in Families Experiencing Domestic Violence seeks to inform child welfare agencies of updated demographics and practices to identify and respond to the presence of domestic violence and to reduce the risk posed to children and domestic violence survivors. This manual aims to guide casework practice by helping to ensure domestic violence survivor safety, perpetrator accountability, and agency response. Working more closely with those providing services related to domestic violence helps create a more comprehensive approach and improve child and family assistance. It is the companion document to Child Protective Services: A guide for caseworkers 2018.
