Helping battered women take care of their children.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Children of battered women are at risk for a variety of emotional, cognitive, and behavioral difficulties. However, a growing body of research has described the important mediating effects on children of even one positive relationship with a significant person. Nurses need to be aware of family violence and to assess every client and family for this problem. Early identification and interventions can stem detrimental effects and help mothers and children recover.
