Number Of Recommendations CommentThe findings and recommendations of the task force are organized into six chapters. The firstchapter provides an overview of the problem and sets forth 56 recommendations.The next two chapters offer a series of recommendations to ensure that we reliably identify, screen, and assess all children exposed to violence and thereafter give them support, treatment, and other services designed to address their needs. In the fourth and fifth chapters, the task force focuses on prevention and emphasizes the importance of effectively integrating prevention, intervention, and resilience across systems by nurturing children through warm,supportive, loving, and nonviolent relationships in our homes and communities. In the sixth andfinal chapter of this report, the task force calls for a new approach to juvenile justice, one that acknowledges that the vast majority of the children involved in that system have been exposed to violence, necessitating the prioritization of services that promote their healing.Access Agency WebsiteYes
