Exposure to Violence and Presence of Depression among Low-Income, African-American Youth.
Fitzpatrick, Kevin M.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v61 n3 p528-31 Jun 1993
Data from 221 low-income, African-American youth between 7 and 18 years of age showed that younger children and those living in motherless households reported more depressive symptoms. Victims of violence reported more depressive symptoms. Chronic exposure to violence, in form of witnessing violent acts, was not significantly related to depression. Witnessing violence had negative effect on depression. (Author/NB)
