The objective of this project was to use a mixed methods approach to expand the understanding of constructs important to resilience after children's exposure to violence (CEV), expand the range of outcomes examined, develop and refine measures appropriate for youth, and identify protective factors that could be targets for prevention and intervention. Eight focus groups and 24 cognitive interviews were conducted with parents and youth to explore resilience constructs. These were followed by a survey completed by 440 youth ages 10 to 21, recruited from youth-serving organizations. Key variables in this collection include demographics such as age, gender, and education; experience of violence; and physical and psychological well-being. The data collection includes:

Survey data file, NCAC.CEVres.survey-data_Updated.sav, n=440, 208 variables; Focus group data file, NCAC.CEVres.Focus-group-transcripts.pdf, n=70; Cognitive interview data file, NCAC.CEVres.Cognitive-interview-transcripts_updated.pdf, n=24; The focus group and interview data files are not available at this time, even under restricted use.

This study aimed to extend previous work on understanding the results of children's exposure to violence, on key factors in children's resilience, and on identifying targets for prevention and intervention.

This study used mixed methods: focus groups, in-depth semi-structured cognitive interviews, and a survey. Additional information about the youth was solicited from affiliated adults.

The survey data file, NCAC.CEVres.survey-data_Updated.sav (n=440, 208 variables), contains variables describing respondent demographics, family situation, community support, school environment, and psychological makeup.
