Children are vulnerable members of society who need protection from anything that might jeopardize their well-being. Exposure to violence, either as a victim or as a witness, is more often than not a traumatic experience for children who are left with life-long physical and psychological injuries. Finding a way to help children exposed to violence and suffering from trauma is very important. As such, this paper will begin by providing research and background information on this issue. The next section of the paper will cover the various elements of an advocacy project aimed at helping children dealing with trauma and preventing other children from experiencing similar outcomes.
