Domestic violence is a devastating social problem that affects every segment of the population. While system responses are primarily targeted towards adult victims of abuse, increasing attention is now focused on the children who witness domestic violence1.

It is a problem of major public concern and has gained wide attention among paediatricians, dentists, psychiatrists, social workers, forensic pathologists, and professionals.
