Treating the Lifetime Health Effects of Childhood Victimization, 2nd Edition Civic Research Institute

"It could be depressing learning about the enormous short and long-term harm children suffer when exposed to domestic violence, child abuse and other traumas.  Instead Dr. Kendall-Tackett's book is exciting and hopeful as she demonstrates the opportunity this new research provides to substantially reduce mental illness, diabetes, alcoholism, asthma, cancer, heart disease and so many other scourges of modern society..  We can shield children from much of this trauma, and using this research to help courts stop sending children to live with abusers will be a wonderful start."
—Barry Goldstein, JD, co-editor (with Mo Therese Hannah), "Domestic Violence, Abuse, and Child Custody"; co-author (with Elizabeth Liu), "Representing the Domestic Violence Survivor"

For children to witness their father abusing their mother, they would tend to be fearful and angry, but often it is unsafe for them to express their anger
Dwin Dykema's insight:

This is an unmitigated catastrophe that substantially increases the children’s risk of illnesses and injuries throughout their lives.

Claudine Dombrowski's curator insight, September 5, 2013 1:27 AM

A 1999 article. Its not like we did not know about it. Almost 20 years later, its become a big money industry to hurt and to kill. The courts are not interested in 'protecting' any one or thing, except for their own 'profitteering'.

Discrimination in Family Courts - Women and Children Beware

Discrimination in Family Courts - Women and Children Beware | Protective Self Help | Scoop.it

We hear from mothers who have lost all contact with their children due to a judge's decision that a child's allegation of abuse is actually a mother's attempt to alienate the father. We hear from women who fear for their children's safety and well-being when they are ordered visitation with an abusive father regardless of their attempts to bring this to the attention of the court. We hear from women who have their cases heard by judges who refuse to hear evidence, who make decisions on ex parte orders without input from the mother, who belittle and berate them in open court, who rely on half-cocked "evaluations" to decide custody or visitation and who favor the father despite the fact that the mother has been the primary caregiver and protective parent.

Claudine Dombrowski's curator insight, September 5, 2013 1:03 AM
In response to this epidemic of injustice in the family law courts, CA NOW formed the Family Law Task Force to study the problem and, in 2002, published the findings from 300 cases where women reported that they had suffered some form of bias or injustice in their family law cases. The findings, published in the CA NOW Family Court Report 2002 showed gender bias, denial of due process, incompetence and corruption.
