- Brief summaryThis is a multicenter, multi-informant and multi-method study within a randomized 2 by 2 factorial experimental design. Participants (N=100) are children, aged 4 to 12 years, and their parents, who have witnessed or have been physically victimized by IPV. Main aim of the study is to test the effects of two parental components as an addition to TF-CBT based therapy for reducing children’s symptoms and adjustment problems after being exposed to IPV. Primary outcome measures are posttraumatic stress symptoms, internalizing and externalizing problems and adjustment in children. Secondary aim of the study is to test whether enhanced effects can be explained changes in children’s responses towards experienced violence, parental availability, and quality of parent-child interaction. To address this secondary aim, the main parameters are observational and questionnaire measures of parental availability, parent-child relationship variables, and children’s responses to IPV. Duration and severity of the IPV, parental psychopathology and new incidents of IPV are examined for their moderating effect. Data are collected three times during the program, one week before the program starts (T1), and one week (T2) and six months (T3) after finishing the program. Both intention-to-treat and completer analyses will be done.
