American Psychological Association Press Release: Children see domestic violence that often goes unreported, research finds. 

Adapted: In "Intervention Following Family Violence: Best Practices and Help-seeking Obstacles in a Nationally Representative Sample of Families With Children," Sherry Hamby, PhD, Sewanee, The University of the South; and David Finkelhor, PhD, and Heather Turner, PhD, University of New Hampshire; Psychology of Violence, published online April 7, a nationwide study of children who have witnessed domestic violence found that parents or caregivers were physically injured in more than a third of the cases, yet only a small fraction of offenders went to jail and just one in four incidents resulted in police reports.
