children exposed to domestic violence
Abstract The service to take care of the children exposed to domestic violence has been developed for quite a while in Taiwan. These services are mostly available at several organizations, including children protection agencies, women protection agencies, Center for Domestic Violence And The Sexual Assault Prevention, and the ones whose main caring targets are those children. Different treatment plans and methods of intervention are applied to diverse organizations. And as such, it is worthwhile to look into the diverse experience of intervention that social workers have, since the integration of social workers' experiences with intervention is not only significant, but essential to the promotion of services for children exposed to domestic violence. The integration of existing experiences would no doubt improve the efficacy of service providers and the quality of services. In addition, it could built partnership so that service providers would cooperate to promote interventions for children exposed to domestic violence. In this research, social workers assisting children exposed to domestic violence have been chosen as the subjects for the study. The in-depth interview technique of the qualitative research methods has been adopted to understand the social workers’ points of view towards those children and to discuss their experiences with intervention and their perception on influences of intervention on the children. A total of ten social workers have been interviewed in this research. Findings from the research indicate that social workers not only get the opportunity to witness the negative traits of children exposed to domestic violence, they also witness the positive energy and the resilience made by the children. In addition, the findings also suggest that social workers associate family problems with children problems from their interaction with violent families. In other words, there is no denying the importance of “family as a cohesive unit” and it is imperative to acknowledge the importance of intervention that focus on "family as an entity” (which includes the batterers, the victim of domestic violence and children exposed to domestic violence). In order to construct a comprehensive support system for children exposed to domestic violence, social workers need to form a close relationship of collaboration with the service network (including social workers for woman protection agencies, teachers and so forth) to creat a better future for these children. The dissertation concludes with a discussion and recommendations for social workers. Hopefully the results of the research could benefit the accumulation of experiences of helping children exposed to domestic violence in Taiwan and facilitation of development for appropriate interventions.
