Voices Set Free
Freeing The Voices Of Those Living With Childhood Domestic Violence
‘Childhood Domestic Violence (CDV) is one of the most pervasive human rights issues of our time” (UNICEF)
Voices Set Free along with the Childhood Domestic Violence Association, NYC, are hosting training and educational forums in Oregon that address CDV. These workshops are designed for all people that engage with children and adults impacted by Childhood Domestic Violence. Growing up with CDV is the SINGLE BEST PREDICTOR of engaging in it later as an adult.
Brian F. Martin, founder of CDVA, and author of the book INVINCIBLE, is leading the way the world understands and treats CDV. Together our mission is to educate and resolve the issues relating to Childhood Domestic Violence. For more information contact Louise Bauschard, LCSW

Children from homes with violence are much more likely to experience significant psychological problems.
