Course Description

CE Course Description

Children are exposed to violence every day in their homes, schools, and communities, and such exposure can cause them significant physical, mental, and emotional harm with long-term effects that can last well into adulthood. This brief continuing education course, developed from the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Juvenile Justice Programs, was developed to summarize survey results of children’s past-year and lifetime exposure to violence, crime, and abuse from ages 1 month to 17 years. Measuring such child victimization accurately and comprehensively is crucial when providing services to child victims of violence and their families and offering programs to educate children, their families, and those who work with children at risk for violence, including educators and other professionals. Areas of victimization assessed include conventional crime, child maltreatment, peer and sibling victimization, and electronic victimization.

CE Course Objectives

1. Summarize national survey results in the areas of children’s past year and lifetime exposure to violence in the home, school, and the community.

2. Describe the consequences of childhood victimization throughout the lifespan.

3. Review the history of the National Survey of Children’s Exposure to Violence (NatSCEV I/II).

4. Identify the types of victimization surveyed and evaluate specific findings across various categories such as assaults, bullying, sexual victimization, child maltreatment, and indirect victimization.

5. Outline implications for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers as they educate the public about childhood violence and analyze interventions to prevent and treat childhood crime, abuse, and violence.
