Using a developmental-ecological perspective, this chapter traces the myriad socio-emotional impacts on children from birth to adolescence, with consideration for the role of caregivers (as both victims and perpetrators) and components of risk and protective factors. The authors cover the prevalence of childhood exposure to domestic violence (CEDV), effects of CEDV on children and youth at various developmental stages, impacts on parenting, and both trauma- and resilience-informed practice perspectives, concluding with recommendations for future research and practice.
