SOCIAL VIOLENCE

Social violence refers to any type of violence committed by individuals or the community that has a social impact. Young children are especially vulnerable to social violence due to their limited abilities to regulate their psychological distress, reduce the threat, or remove themselves from the situation. Exposure to social violence will influence their short and long term physical, social, neurological and emotional development.
