Honor our Voices: Children’s perspectives of Domestic Violence

Honor Our Voices is a unique online learning module providing you with the opportunity to see domestic violence through the eyes and voices of children. The purpose of this learning module is to create a multi-pronged response to increase the awareness and sensitivity of shelter advocates and other social service providers to the needs of children and suggest promising ways of enhancing services for children exposed to domestic violence. Included in this learning module is a downloadable guide for practice and a digital library of short audio programs that highlight specific promising practices through the voices of children.

Honor Our Voices is supported by Avon Foundation for Women in partnership with the Minnesota Center Against Violence and Abuse (MINCAVA) and Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare (CASCW) at the University of Minnesota.
