Abstract: 

Exposure to domestic violence is a form of child maltreatment identified in approximately 28% of all cases of substantiated maltreatment in Canada. Children who witness domestic violence are at risk for a wide range of internalizing and externalizing behavioural problems and are reported to be at greater risk for extending violence into their adult relationships.
