ABSTRACT

Through Our Eyes: Children, Violence, and Trauma   [open html - 3KB]

This webpage from the Office for Victims of Crime provides videos and resources to aid children who have been exposed to violence and trauma. "Too many children have been exposed to crime, abuse, and violence in their homes, schools, and communities. These experiences can lead to serious, long-term problems. Early identification, intervention, and treatment are key. The Federal Government has a responsibility to act, but our efforts cannot succeed without local law enforcement, child and family services, community leaders, educators, coaches, and--above all--parents. Everyone plays a role in identifying, protecting, and treating children exposed to violence. The videos in this series compel all of us to join our neighbors and the growing ranks of professionals who have made it their life's work to help traumatized children heal and thrive."
