This section of the website is designed to provide up-to-date information on interventions and resources for children exposed to violence for domestic advocates and other service providers who work with families.
The information provided has been collected through a national review of programs and interventions for children exposed to family violence and other forms of trauma.
These emerging practices may be the building blocks of interventions that will be evaluated and become evidence-based programming in the future.
This website is updated periodically to provide the latest information on new programming and evaluation as the field advances.
It was later revealed in the fifth season that Jenelle lied about the miscarriage (having posted photos of fake blood on social media before going out to drink with an ex-boyfriend) and chose instead to abort her pregnancy and divorced Courtland after a short marriage.On December 4, 2012 Jenelle married Courtland Rogers.The couple got engaged in November 2012 and were expecting her second child.There is increasing emphasis on implementing evidence-based programming to ensure continued funding and maximize potential effectiveness with limited resources.There are also ongoing opportunities to learn from emerging practices as communities design and adapt services to be culturally relevant and meet families’ need.The two have an explosive relationship, which is amplified by the fact that Barbara now has permanent custody of Jace, while Jenelle has limited visitation.Through it all, Jenelle struggles to prove herself as a mom and responsible adult, but her party girl ways keep leading her down the wrong path.Children 0-5 years old; Children 6-12 years old; Adolescents Children and Non Abusive Caretaker; Child; Family Domestic Violence Shelter; School; Hospital Based; Residential; Home; Correctional; Homeless Shelter; Headstart/Early Education Programs; Other Community Settings The program profiles featured represent a wide array of interventions ranging from evidence-based programs that have been proven to be effective in reducing trauma symptoms and behavioral problems in children exposed to domestic violence to innovative programs that have limited or no formal evaluation.Some of programs that are not supported by evaluation data are well-established interventions that are informed by decades of experience while others are emerging practices that may provide new ideas and insights for working with children exposed to violence.Several programs have been specifically developed for children exposed to domestic violence or have been adapted to work with children exposed to domestic violence.Children growing up in homes with domestic violence often experience other forms of trauma and we can also find pearls of wisdom to inform our work from other interventions that work with traumatized children.
