Please check out this great new resource linked to the “National Survey of Children’s Exposure to Violence (NatSCEV) [that] is the largest, most comprehensive survey on youth victimization conducted in the United States.”
The website notes that:
“The Juvenile Victimization Questionnaire-2nd Revision (JVQ-R2) is the core of NatSCEV. The full JVQ-R2, including supplements, [and] assesses 50+ forms of victimization across five general areas:
- Conventional crime
- Peer and sibling victimization
- Sexual victimization
- Witnessing and other exposure to violence.”
This will be a great resource to help further awareness about youth victimization as a whole and improve research!
