Children's Witnessing of Adult Domestic Violence.
Edleson, Jeffrey L.
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v14 n8 p839-70 Aug 1999
Expands common definitions of how children witness adult domestic violence through a review of 31 research articles. A variety of behavioral, emotional, and cognitive-functioning problems among children were found to be associated with exposure to domestic violence. Factors that appear to moderate the impact of witnessing violence (child abuse, gender, age, and time since last exposure to violence) were identified. (Author/MKA)
