Many children and youth experience domestic violence, which can lead to significant physical, mental, behavioral, cognitive, and developmental problems. There is an ongoing need to develop and evaluate effective interventions for children exposed to domestic violence (CEDV), as well as to disseminate information about best practices to domestic violence advocacy programs, community partners, and other service providers. Futures Without Violence (FUTURES) received funding in 2010 to conduct a baseline national scan of interventions for CEDV and create a web-based repository of interventions and related resources. A total of 23 interventions that serve children and families exposed to domestic violence met inclusion criteria in the baseline scan conducted in 2012. The update of the national scan, conducted in 2017, nearly doubled the number of interventions that met inclusion criteria for CEDV. A total of 22 interventions for children and families exposed to domestic violence that had not been previously identified during the baseline national scan 4 were added to both this report and the web-based resource.
