Special Issue "Child Victimisation"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Global Health".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2019
Child victimization, the victimization experience by various forms of violence, including, but not limited to, child abuse and neglect by parents, violence, and bullying by peer and siblings, and exposure to neighborhood violence and crime, has been demonstrated to be a prevalent problem that leads to different negative impacts on victims. The negative consequences are often found to last until adolescence and even adulthood. Recent research efforts have been focused on combating child victimisation through early identification, cultural-specific prevention and intervention, as well as multidisciplinary collaboration among professionals from various fields.
This Special Issue on “Child Victimization” seeks articles on different kinds of child victimization, with a special focus on (i) child polyvictimization, which is the exposure to multiple types of victimization; (ii) associations between child victimization and other kinds of violence within the same family; (iii) cultural-specific issues on the problem, and (iv) prevention or intervention programs involving multidisciplinary collaboration. Empirical studies, systematic reviews, and meta-analytic studies will be considered. The keywords listed below provide an outline of some possible areas of interest.
