TLC KIDZ

How does domestic abuse affect children?
Children who are exposed to domestic violence tend to have more difficulties than children from non-violent environments. The longer children are exposed to domestic abuse, the greater effect it has on their development. Some possible signs of abuse are:

Injuries, such as bruises or broken bones
Self harm
Sleeping difficulties
Bed wetting
Anger
Withdrawal
Acting out
Being protective of self or siblings
Social isolation
Low self esteem

TLZ KIDZ 

TLC Kidz is a 12-week, psycho-educational, group programme for children up to 18 years of age and mothers in recovery from domestic abuse. Groups for children and mothers are run concurrently.

The programme aims to help children heal from the impact of domestic abuse, and to help mothers in understanding their child’s experiences and support their recovery.

It promotes the well-being of children and mothers through validating their experiences, safety planning, social support, teaching appropriate expression of difficult emotions, and enhancing communication between children and mothers.
