Children Who See Too Much: Lessons from the Child Witness to Violence Project

Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 2004;158(12):1189-1190. doi:10.1001/archpedi.158.12.1189-b

Millions of children in the United States are silent witnesses to violence in their own homes and neighborhoods and on television each year. A growing research literature demonstrates that the acute and chronic effects of such violence can be profound, impacting children physically, emotionally, behaviorally, and cognitively. Children Who See Too Much, by Betsy McAlister Groves, is an insightful look at how children experience and react to violence. Most importantly, it provides concrete guidance for parents, physicians, teachers, and other child health advocates on how to help children who witness violence.
