Children Exposed to Violence

Panelists will discuss the results of the recent Office of Juvenile Justice and ​Delinquency Prevention's National Survey on Children's Exposure to Violence and findings from a seven-year follow-up study, funded by NIJ, on home visitation in New York. The survey's findings included startling figures: More than 60 percent of the children interviewed were exposed to violence, crime and abuse within the past year, and more than 1 in 10 were injured in an assault. The New York study evaluated Healthy Families New York, a home-visiting program that focuses on parent-child interactions and child development, and found its programs may help girls avoid risky or deviant behaviors during their early school years. The discussant will provide a practitioner's perspective on these studies and the critical issues of children exposed to violence.​
