Family Violence

1. Discuss the statement made in your textbook that women and children in the US are in more danger at home than on the streets of most violent cities. Research information and statistics from a city of choice and provide some examples. 2. What are some of the major causes of violence in families? As a community member and/or child care provider list some ways you could assist these families in crisis. 3. Watch the short clip for the trailer of “Resilience” below. Research shows as early as in-utero children can be negatively impacted by family violence. Why do you think they say in the video clip “the body remembers?” Look up the work of trauma specialist Dr. Peter Levine and share in the discussion something you learned about how Dr. Levine understands the storage of traumatic memories.
