Abstract: This Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) Web resource presents a video series and related materials that discuss how crime, abuse, violence, and trauma affect children. The series includes videos on: 1) How violence and trauma affect children, including the serious and long-lasting consequences for their physical and mental health; signs that a child may be exposed to violence or trauma; and the staggering cost of child maltreatment to families, communities, and the Nation. 2) The serious consequences of children’s exposure to violence and trauma, such as substance abuse and mental health and behavioral problems, and the increased severity of symptoms experienced by children who have suffered multiple forms of victimization. 3) The Child Advocacy Center Model, which brings together representatives from many disciplines, including law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical and victim advocacy, and child advocacy, to provide comprehensive services to child victims of abuse, neglect, and trauma. And, 4) the important role that community- and faith-based programs, services, and agencies play in protecting and responding to children. The videos can be watched via YouTube, or downloaded in three versions: QuickTime, Windows Media, and Closed Caption. Additional online child and youth victimization resources from OVC that detail the effects on children of exposure to violence and trauma are also provided.
