This webinar will describe the many risks of harm (short-term and long-term) for children exposed to violence in their community. As rates of violent crime continue to increase in many communities across the United States, child-serving professionals across all disciplines must gain greater insight into the damaging effects of exposure to these incidents, on the children who reside there. With a focus on the emotionally-damaging nature of this exposure, outcome differences by: race, gender, age, and the nature and frequency of community violence exposure will be discussed. In addition, this webinar will cover the overlap between exposure to violence in the community as a child, and risks for subsequent victimization or perpetration of violence in the home and/or community as an adolescent or adult. Finally, critical components of effective and efficient community-inclusive, multi-disciplinary intervention efforts will be described.
