Youth Victimization

Satisfactory Essays
In 2012, the Attorney General’s Task Force on Children Exposed to Violence reported that about two out of three children in the United States have been exposed to some type of violence (Listenbee, Torre, et al., 2012). That report stated that of the 76 million youth currently living in the United States, about 46 million have been affected by trauma in the form of violence, crime, and/or maltreatment. In addition, many of these youth experience multiple forms of victimization, sometimes referred to as polyvictimization.
