Examines the research on theory, research and applied issues related to children exposed to violence and analyzes the complex interactions that determine children's outcomes. Among the questions the book addresses are the following: Why are some children greatly affected by marital violence, whereas others 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? /// Part I focuses on theoretical and conceptual issues that have been neglected by much of the previous research in this field. Part II presents research reports, each of which provides one or more methodological innovations for better understanding children's responses to marital violence. Part III focuses on some of the research implications for social policy and intervention with this population of children. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
