Abstract: The possibility of identifying the scope, prevalence and incidence of violence against children, at the national and international level, is determined by the way of measurement and the kind of information available on this type of crime. The starting point for successful preventive and combative measures of victimization of children is an efficient system of recording and presenting the data on violence to which they are exposed to, based on the information from the incident, the family, the perpetrator and the victim. This paper aims to identify and analyze ways of recording and the type of available data on violence against children, as well as the place of child victim in the officially presented data at the global and national level. In doing so, the paper was based on the research of relevant international and national literature in the field of judicial and social protection statistics, publications based on data from the judiciary, those based on the use of victimization surveys and other prospective or retrospective research of violent victimization experiences in childhood. At the very least an analysis of the Serbian approach to this area is given.

Abstract: the present study sought to understand the conceptions held by health professionals with regards to violence within the family against children and adolescents. qualitative case-study methodology and techniques of participant observation, interviewing, and search in documents were used. participants were staffed in a government-run family health basic unit in brazil. health professionals were found to associate violence with the economic, social, and political juncture and with cultural aspects; for some, violent acts are part of the intergenerational cycle and family dynamics. physical punishment, considered as violence by some, is advocated as an educational measure by others. participants also base their definition of violence on an a priori construction of subjects as either victims or aggressors, thus missing the relational dimension of the phenomenon. health professionals were found to have difficulty in understanding violence in the context that gives it a meaning and to recognize it as consequence of a complex relational dynamics.

Abstract: since 2008, ciudad juarez (chihuahua, mexico) has been undergoing a wave of violence due to a drug war, making the city a difficult environment in which to raise a family. this study uses qualitative methodology that incorporates 16 in-depth interviews with parents of children ages 0-5 years and 9 sets of photos from a subset of interviewed parents. the study explores how families' economic, social, and cultural capital has been disrupted by the violence and how it affects children's well-being. social and economic capital declined significantly because of the violence as families experienced crime, had increased difficulty finding and maintaining employment, and decreased their interactions outside the home. interviews also suggested that opportunities to gain cultural capital decreased because of this isolation. understanding the detrimental effects of violence on families' capital can contribute to understanding children's well-being in violence-stricken communities.

Abstract: we sought, in this investigation, to understand the family dynamics in the view of parents and children involved in domestic violence against children and adolescents institutionalized in the center of assistance to the victimized child and adolescent (cacav), in ribeir?o preto-sp, brazil. this is a qualitative study with semi-structured interviews applied to parents and children from six families involved in domestic violence. the data were analyzed through content analysis. ecology of human development was used as theoretical reference. domestic violence was reported, though it is understood as common practice for the families. we identified that the parents' view favors the denial of the violence perpetrated. the children, on the other hand, point that love ties and affection are more significant for their development than blood relations. we believe that the knowledge acquired as how violence is experienced, can contribute with intervention strategies capable of breaking the perverse cycle of violent family relationships.
