Nigel Latta 4 - Killing Our Kids (Episode Four)

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2014

In this episode of Nigel Latta, the presenter and psychologist studies New Zealand's domestic abuse epidemic. With the second highest rate of child homicide in the world, Aotearoa needs to break the cycle. Latta investigates causes, effects, and hears from perpetrators, victims and those trying to put an end to the violence. Vic Tamati, Henare O'Keefe and dynamic duo Linda Salmon and Briar Deed  all advocates for ending domestic abuse  tackle the issue firsthand by teaching Kiwis to take responsibility, how to heal from being a victim, and how to break the generational cycle of pain before it effects their children.

If you actually look back, I'll bet nine times out of ten, he was a victim… a generational victim.
– Briar Deed, social worker for Te Whānau Tahi, on abusers
