Violence affects all of us. But for children, violence can be particularly difficult to cope with and understand.
Compounding the issue, there’s not a specific type or source of violence to address.

It’s exposure to violence, the length of exposure, the amount of exposure, the pervasiveness of exposure,” Dr. Duru Sakhrani, a child and adolescent psychiatrist at Mercy Children’s Hospital St. Louis, told “St. Louis on the Air” host Don Marsh on Wednesday.
