A workshop today at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls is focusing on the effects of domestic violence on children. Al Hays, director of UNI’s public policy program, says the workshop is part of a program known as the “Community Partnership.”He says the idea of the partnership is to get the whole community involved in supporting families. Hays says this is an issue that hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves. He says the direct impact of domestic violence has been studied, but not as much time has been devoted to the impact on kids. Hays says the workshop is free to participants.He says a lot of the people attending today are professionals, and many are just people from the community.
