Child violence directed at caregivers (CCV) involves coercive actions intended to gain power and control in the home.  CCV may involve physical, psychological, or financial damage, and is typically kept secret by families.  This introductory webinar reviews the prevalence of CCV, as well as relevant research on the problem.  A strong case is made for routine screening for CCV in family treatment.  Treatment recommendations based on an eco-systemic structural model of family therapy (ESFT) are described. 

This is an edited version of a presentation by the three Pennsylvania FBMHS training directors (Dr. Steve Simms, Pat Johnston, & Dr Wayne Jones) to a group of FBMHS supervisors on 9/14 for the Behavioral Health Alliance of Rural Pennsylvania (BEHARP), a collaborative representing 24 counties.
