What happens when kids see domestic violence

The trauma of witnessing domestic violence between parents can actually impact how a child's brain develops, according to new research.

The Victoria Women's Transition House is hosting a screening of Behind Closed Doors, a video intended to shed light on these results for  teachers, medical practitioners, counsellors, parents, and other adults at

the Gibson Auditorium at Camosun College, Lansdowne Campus on May 22 at 3:30 p.m.

After the film, a panel of experts will discuss the latest research and participate in a Q&A period.
