In this article, we will provide an overview of the effects of witnessing violence on children and adolescents, discuss the importance of health clinicians inquiring about violence in the lives of children, and discuss the role of the clinician in educating parents about children's responses to violence. In addition, we will describe training resources that improve clinicians' skills at identifying and responding to children and their parents.
