OVC Video Series Addresses Children’s Exposure to Violence

March 11, 2013

Through Our Eyes

The Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) has released “Through Our Eyes: Children, Violence, and Trauma,” an online video series to address the needs of children exposed to violence and victimization. The series includes a public awareness video in which victims discuss the effects of the violence and trauma they experienced and three topic-specific videos detailing evidence-based treatment, child advocacy strategies, and community-based approaches to help those affected.

Online resource guides are offered for each video.
