    #61. Family Violence

     This Conversation Will Help You…


    1. Talk about growing up, how they were treated (adults)
    2. Name ways they would support a friend/partner
    3. Name ways that witnessing violence would impact someone


    Think About This First

    • Although this conversation might not be possible to have in a family where violence is happening, questions about resources and how to support a friend or partner can be helpful information to have.


    Having the Conversation


    Start Here:

    If a person has grown up in a home where they have seen or experienced violence, what kind of impact do that think that has on a person?

    Do you think they will automatically be violent when they grow up?



    Experiencing violence doesn’t always mean that a person will then grow up to be violent – people choose how they act, even though past experiences could influence them.

    How could they make sure they aren’t?

    What are the kinds of things would constitute violence in a family?


    Keep Talking:

    If someone was in a violent home or a damaging relationship, where could they go for help?

    Do you know of any resources or programs in our community that help people trying to escape a violent home?

    Who could they talk to that was safe?
