Abstract:

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a major public health concern on an international level. It is clear from the literature that women are overwhelmingly the victims of IPV and that children, more often than not, are exposed to the violence against their mothers. Recent research has highlighted that exposure to IPV can lead to detrimental physical, emotional, behavioral, and developmental sequelae in children. Currently, specific interventions for children exposed to IPV tend to share similar goals including decreasing risk of future violence, increasing protective factors in the aftermath of IPV, decreasing aggression and internalizing behaviors (i.e., PTSD symptoms, depression), and improving social relationships. In addition to many of the standard clinical intervention programs available, bibliotherapy specific to children exposed to IPV have also been created. In order to examine bibliotherapy resources in more detail, the available children's books that could potentially be used in treatment with children exposed to IPV were identified and reviewed. Each book's usefulness was then evaluated in terms of format, character descriptors, type of IPV acts, type of IPV exposure, type of symptoms experienced due to exposure to IPV, therapeutic messages delivered, and any potential interventions to help children understand what they have experienced. A children's book for those exposed to IPV was then developed. This new book is informed by the review of available children's books noted above, as well as the most current scholarly literature relevant to children's exposure to IPV.
