What About Us?

Top of page

A video presented entirely from the children's point of view and intended for use in a group counselling setting to help children talk about and cope with their own experiences of abuse and to reassure them that they are not alone. Dramatic vignettes follow the progress of children as they receive counselling on an individual and group level in sessions such as those provided by the Children Who Witness Abuse Program, developed by B.C./Yukon Society of Transition Houses. Viewers will observe how a child may develop a safety plan for dangerous situations. The drama will also show children learning to accept that they are not to blame for their parent's conflict and the violence at home, that help is available and that they can reach out for it.
