Abstract
Recently, it has been acknowledged that not only does intimate partner violence affect the victim, but it may also cause psychological damage to children who may be exposed to it, both directly and indirectly. This paper will aim to examine two types of evidenced-based interventions available for children who have been exposed to intimate partner violence and have developed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as a result. The analysis provided for this paper is based on the studies provided by "Community Treatment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder for Children Exposed to Intimate Partner Violence: A Randomized Controlled Trial" (2011) as well as "Toward Evidence-based Treatment: Child-parent Psychotherapy with Preschoolers Exposed to Marital Violence" (2005). The analysis of the data provided in both articles will serve to prove that both Child-Parent Psychotherapy and Trauma Focused Behavioral Therapy can reduce the symptoms in children who have been exposed to intimate partner violence. Furthermore, it will be established that both of these approaches are viable alternatives to the current treatment methodologies available.
