Violence in low-income neighborhoods in the United States: Do we care?
Date of Original Version
The focus of this paper is on the chronic violence in low-income neighborhoods to which children and adults are regularly exposed. Such neighborhoods have been called "urban war zones," and those who witness the violence have been referred to as co-victims. This paper examines what we know about the prevalence of neighborhood violence, the consequences of continued exposure to it, the dominant responses to the problem within psychology, a critique of these responses, and possible next steps. © 2003 by The Haworth Press, Inc.
