Domestic violence is an issue that affects not only adults that are involved but children that may witness it. Domestic violence is not gender specific and both women as well as men can be victims. Women do have higher rates of being victims than men do but regardless of whether men or women are victims of domestic violence, domestic violence still affects children. The research reviews domestic violence and intervention programs that are being implemented to help those who have experienced domestic violence, however few domestic violence intervention programs that target all children are being implemented within the school systems at this time. The current study measures children's knowledge of what domestic violence is, how to describe domestic violence and how to react in a way that will maximize safety. Knowledge was measured with an assessment that was given before and after the intervention.
