Supplementary Resources to the Child Victims and Witnesses Support Materials
This package of materials was specifically designed for practitioners working with child victims and witnesses. They were created with the input of subject matter experts and frontline practitioners from diverse professional roles who have expertise in supporting children who have experienced violence and victimization. These materials were funded by the U.S. Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) and are supplementary to OVC’s Child Victims and Witnesses Support Materials.
The practitioner materials are comprised of several brief guides covering a range of topics, including working with children who have experienced trauma, strategies for effectively communicating with children and preparing them for court, and legal terms and processes explained in child-friendly language.
