Children Exposed to Violence

Children’s exposure to violence typically refers to children who witness or are victimized by violence. This includes physical assault, peer victimization, sexual victimization, child abuse and maltreatment, as well as witnessing (seeing or hearing) in the home, school, or community.  Exposure to violence, particularly multiple exposures, can interfere with a child’s physical, emotional, and intellectual development.
