Bridge Builders Academy: Growing up with Domestic Violence: Impact on Children and How to Build Resilience in the Face of Domestic Violence
October 18, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Domestic violence can affect a child’s mental and physical health, social adjustment and future. The trauma of growing up in a home with domestic violence also puts children at greater risk for substance use, delinquency and relationship problems. Learn about what actions we can take to help children overcome these risks by building resilience.
Presenter: Cynthia Mickines, Henrico County assistant commonwealth’s attorney
The Bridge Builders Academy workshop series provides information and builds connections among families, the community and Henrico County Public Schools. The series is open to all residents, regardless of whether they have students enrolled in the school division.
Each of the workshops in the series represents one of four “learning strands,” or categories. The learning strands are: Beyond the Classroom; Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; Exceptional Education; and Information, Access and Opportunities.
Most Bridge Builders Academy workshops are virtual, and students, staff and members of the public can participate using Microsoft Teams. More information about the workshops, as well as instructions and links for participating, are at the Bridge Builders Academy webpage at https://henricoschools.us/bridgebuildersacademy.
Many workshops are recorded for later viewing, and you can watch past workshops by going to the Bridge Builders Academy page.
