The aim of our activities was to provide professional assistance to women and men of families living in the capital city of Prague which have at least one child aged 0-6 years and have been involved in cases of domestic violence. Given the large number of these cases, the region suffers from a critical shortage of similar services. With the help of this project, we have been able to renovate and furnish sheltered housing where domestic violence victims can find temporary asylum and professional services. A team of specialists has been created (including a psychologist, special education teacher, nurse, paediatrician and social worker) that provides each family with comprehensive tailor-made bio-psychosocial services. The project has progressed successfully and serves to prevent the removal of children from these families and their placement in state institutions. It also serves to prevent pathological behaviour patterns in children who have witnessed long-term domestic violence.
