OJJDP Releases National Survey of Children's Exposure to Violence Publications

October 13, 2011

NatSCEV series imageThe Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has released two new bulletins from its National Survey of Children's Exposure to Violence (NatSCEV) series and a fact sheet on the survey.

"Polyvictimization: Children's Exposure to Multiple Types of Violence, Crime, and Abuse" focuses on polyvictimization, which is defined as having experienced multiple victimization of different kinds, such as sexual abuse, physical abuse, bullying, and exposure to family violence.

"Children's Exposure to Intimate Partner Violence and Other Family Violence" explores in depth the NatSCEV results regarding exposure to family violence among children in the United States, including exposure to intimate partner violence, assaults by parents on siblings of children surveyed, and other assaults involving teen and adult household members.

OJJDP also released a fact sheet that outlines the survey's objectives and key features, how the research team measured exposure to violence, and plans for followup surveys and publications.
