In the UK approximately 29.5% of children have lived with domestic violence and abuse (DVA) during their lifetime (Radford, Corral, Bradley, & Fisher, 2013). In line with the UK definition, the term DVA in this paper refers to “an incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are or have been intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality. This can encompass, but is not limited to, the following types of abuse: psychological; physical; sexual; financial; emotional” (British Home Office, 2013).
