|Abstract||A huge number of Colombian children are the victims of domestic violence. This may be due to migration or, more likely, to the fact that many families know no other way of bringing up their children. To initiate a programme of prevention and post-traumatic care, the University of North Barranquilla and the Bernard van Leer Foundation collaborated on a scientific study suitably adapted to the Colombian socio-cultural context. The main question underpinning the project was “What is the best way to work with families who have a history of domestic violence – especially with the children?” The project attempted to answer the question, first by establishing the situation faced by vulnerable children, then by developing and implementing a support system to meet their needs.|
