Most effective interventions associated with domestic violence include safety planning, child advocacy, information advocacy, and alternate housing. This is generally referred to as “legal advocacy” and involves the criminal justice system.

Therefore, continued discussion about trauma is an important cognitive and emotional part (Grasso, Joselow, Marquez, & Webb, 2011).

A client’s reluctance to seek treatment is always a barrier in any treatment. This treatment widens the scope of that barrier as many people do not feel as if children that young need therapy.
