Summary
"Children Exposed to Marital Violence: Theory, Research, and Applied Issues examines the research on this topic and analyzes the complex interactions that determine children's outcomes. Among the questions it addresses are the following: Why are some children greatly affected by this type of violence, whereas others seem to function quite well under the circumstances? What features of the hostile environment are the children reacting to, and what characteristics of the children and their parents mediate or exacerbate behavior problems? Why is there such variability in children's outcomes, and what can be done to help them?"--BOOK JACKET. "Children Exposed to Marital Violence: Theory, Research, and Applied Issues brings together leading researchers in the field in a discussion of a serious social issue that affects millions of children in the United States today. This volume will be of interest to those who study family violence or deal with the consequences of such violence: developmental, clinical, and educational psychologists; social workers; sociologists; and policy makers."--BOOK JACKET
