This article describes the current practice of work with children who have witnessed domestic violence in the UK and North America. It examines this practice in the light of evidence of effectiveness and in the light of research that explains how witnessing domestic violence affects children. Finally it proposes guidelines for an evidenced-based practice which is built on this research.
