The impact of children witnessing violence.

Author information

Department of Pediatrics, Children's Mercy Hospital, University of Missouri-Kansas City, School of Medicine, USA.


Over the past decade, Americans have recognized that violence has deeply permeated the lives of the most vulnerable among us--children. There is great concern over the effect these terrible experiences will have on present and future generations. It has also awakened the collective consciousness of our society that the impact of violence extends well beyond the child who is physically victimized to other larger groups of children such as those who witness these events. This article reviews the impact violence has on children.
