Violence in Context

Todd I. Herrenkohl

Oxford University Press

As discussed in Chapter 5, there are many high risk environments that expose children to violence. Research on how children and youth in high risk environments overcome the odds of negative outcomes is crucial to the development of prevention and intervention efforts. Chapter 6 explores the concepts of resilience and protection with respect to violence exposure in children. Issues of race and gender are again considered. Implications for both targeted and universal prevention and intervention programs are discussed briefly.

Keywords:   family violence, child maltreatment, community violence, exposure to violence, resilience, protection, prevention, race and ethnic differences, gender differences
