The goal of this project is to compare four group counselling programs for children who have witnessed or experienced domestic violence. Information found in a review of the literature will be used to highlight commonalities, strengths, and areas for improvement in these programs. The comparison portion revealed that the programs in this project included similar session objectives that were for the most part supported by the literature, but varied greatly in their guidelines for program setup and termination. An advantage of this project is the gaining of awareness for service providers and other professionals of the programs that are available for working with children who have experienced or witnessed family violence. This information can also be used to modify existing programs or develop new programs, directly benefiting any children or parents seeking help with the problems associated with domestic violence.
