Childhood Exposure to Violence

Previous studies have relied almost exclusively on self-report questionnaires to assess appraisals; consequently we know little about perceptions that occur naturally when children witness interparental aggression. This study employed a semi-structured interview to assess the thoughts and feelings of 34 children ages 7—12 whose mothers were receiving services at domestic violence agencies, and mothers reported on interparental aggression that took place in the home. Sadness and anger were more common than anxiety, and children often attempted to stop or withdraw from fights or both. These findings support the idea that children actively attempt to understand the causes and consequences of interparental violence and suggest that their perceptions and interpretations are important for understanding the development of beliefs regarding the use of violence in close relationships.

Violence exposure in the lives of children includes both indirect forms of witnessing and direct forms of victimization across family and community contexts. Violence includes physical, emotional and sexual forms. We focus here predominantly on physical violence exposure.

Some tragedies are unintentional and unpredictable, such as traffic accidents or natural disasters. Others are intentional and sometimes premeditated, such as fights, muggings, shootings, murders, and terrorist attacks. When children are exposed to a traumatic event, including a violent crime, their response may vary. Some children become fearful.

Снова открыв окно, Сьюзан изучила содержащуюся в нем информацию. Какая-то бессмыслица. Вначале был зарегистрирован нормальный ввод замка, в тот момент, когда она выходила из помещения Третьего узла, однако время следующей команды отпирания показалось Сьюзан странным.
