CDV Tools

Over the past 10 years, we’ve developed groundbreaking, highly scalable tools and resources in collaborations with leading researchers and institutions and using the best-known practices in the field that have never existed before, to help as many children and adults impacted as possible. These tools were each built separately, as stand-alone tools, to be used individually. Each tool serves a similar purpose but is intended for a slightly different constituency or age group, and uses a different medium (as we know different people learn differently) to deliver essential information and education about CDV. However, they are also interconnected and complement each other in a number of essential ways. So, in working with leading partner organizations nationwide over the past 3 years, we realized the tools optimize the outcomes and benefit when used TOGETHER. Together, they cover the full spectrum of ages and applications. So, we packaged all of them, along with supporting materials and information, into 1 box – the CDV TOOLKIT.

The CDV TOOLKIT

ToolkitTo build awareness, understanding, and sharing surrounding the issue of Childhood Domestic Violence, we have created the CDV Toolkit – a compilation of unprecedented tools we’ve developed over the past 10 years that have never existed before, to help those impacted by CDV…or those who care for, work with, or mentor them.

BEYOND THE CDV TOOLKIT

The CDV TOOLKIT is an excellent starting point for building greater awareness and understanding of CDV, among those impacted by CDV or those who work with or care about them. But for those who interact with impacted children in particular, additional information and training is often needed to optimize their ability and confidence to optimally intervene effectively. 

Our free, 30-min, evidence-based online program CHANGE A LIFE is a good next step for teaching you the key actions and even the simple words to say that can make a significant difference.

The CHANGE A LIFE Program

Change_A_Life_Heart (2)

The Change A Life program is a first-of-its-kind, empirically tested, evidence-based, self-administered online program developed to prepare caring adults to step in and be a protective factor for children impacted by CDV. Developed by the world’s leading researcher and endorsed by the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, it was created to help increase an individual’s knowledge about the effects of CDV and give them greater confidence in their ability to help children who grow up with violence in their homes, as well as support friends or other adults who experienced CDV in childhood.
