This volume includes seven chapters that examine the phenomenon of childhood exposure to violence from a variety of perspectives. Chapter One discusses some of the main behavioral problems of students in the school context such as bullying among peers, including the causes and mitigation strategies of such behaviors. Chapter Two proposes a conceptual framework to include youth exposure as victims of or witnesses to different types of interpersonal violence. Chapter Three details the repercussions of childhood exposure to domestic violence on human development. Chapter Four investigates the characteristics of victims of child-to-parent violence. Chapter Five examines the role that time perspective, particularly the orientation towards the future, and expectations play in the relationship between adverse past experiences of adolescents in residential care and their involvement in risky behaviors. Chapter Six includes the results of a study on the phenomenon of parental alienation in Brazil. Finally, Chapter Seven analyzes domestic violence cases reported to Portuguese police forces in the context of exposure of children to domestic violence.
