Abstract

In the UK, domestic violence (DV) is one of the most common safeguarding concerns children and young people report (CAADA, 2014). However, little is known about how children experience participation in interventions that aim to support their recovery if they have been affected by DV. This study aims to understand children's experiences of participating in a group programme facilitated by a DV organisation in the UK. Interviews were conducted with four children (aged 7-10) using a flexible, creative and child-led approach. A thematic narrative analysis was used, using a small story approach to narrative data.

RESULTS indicate that issues of children's agency, choice and intersecting identities are central to not only how children experience DV but also how they experience recovery.

FINDINGS highlight the experiential and relational aspect of therapeutic spaces that can enable children to form relationships and construct meaningful identities.

CONCLUSIONS suggest that children need to be consulted in inclusive ways in order to contribute to the development and accessibility of services designed to support them when they have been affected by DV.
