Concerned about youth who are victims of violence, or who've witnessed it?
Practitioners, researchers, and policymakers can get news and resources from the Safe Start Center, run by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP).
Places to start:
- “Issue Brief #1: Understanding Children’s Exposure to Violence”
- “Healing the Invisible Wounds: Children’s Exposure to Violence”
- Victimization and Juvenile Offending, from the National Child Traumatic Stress Network, which also put out Helping Traumatized Children: Tips for Judges
- Judges might also be interested in the Judicial Checklist for Children and Youth Exposed to Violence from the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ)
You can also follow the Safe Start Center on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.
