Influence of Domestic Violence in the Characterization (Growth, Psychological Behavior and Academic Performance) of Teenagers in School / Colleges
In India comprehensive house hold data on this prevalence and costs of domestic violence are lacking. The multi-site study by the international clinical epidemiologists network (INCLEN)is a pioneering effort to estimate comparable rates of violence within and across: India, chile, Brazil, Egypt and Philippines. According to Violence Prevention Alliance under Global Campaign for Violence Prevention (WHO, 1997), “Violence is the intentional use of physical force or power, threatened or actual, against oneself or against a group or community that either results in or has a high likelihood of resulting in psychological harm, mal development or deprivation”. Children are exposed to or experience domestic violence in many ways. In most domestic violence poses a serious threat to children’s emotional, psychological and physical well-being, particularly if the violence is chronic.
