National Center for Children Exposed to Violence

The National Center for Children Exposed to Violence
was established in 1999 at the Yale Child Study Center
by the U.S. Department of Justice. It's mission "is to
increase the capacity of individuals and communities
to reduce the incidence and impact of violence on children
and families; to train and support the professionals who
provide intervention and treatment to children and
families affected by violence; and to increase professional
and public awareness of the effects of violence on children,
families, communities, and society."
