OVC Video Series Addresses Children’s Exposure to Violence

May 6, 2014

Through Our Eyes: Children, Violence, and Trauma In observance of National Child Abuse Prevention Month and National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) has released four videos in the online series "Through Our Eyes: Children, Violence, and Trauma." The series of eight videos addresses the needs of children exposed to violence and victimization. The new videos highlight intervention in schools, innovations in juvenile justice, addressing violence in the home, and a call to action. The other four videos in the series focus on public awareness, evidence-based treatment, child advocacy strategies, and community-based approaches. Resource guides and posters are also available.
