This study utilized the meta-analysis technique to explore the relationship between domestic violence exposure and children's externalizing and internalizing outcomes. Results from 22 reviewed studies produced mean weighted effect size Cohen's d values of .63 and .59 for the association between domestic violence exposure and children's internalizing and externalizing behaviors accordingly. An overall weighted effect size of d=.62 was calculated for the association between domestic violence exposure and children's behavioral outcomes. Results from overall weighted effect size d values of .44 (hear), .55 (witness), and .62 (experience) were calculated for the relationship between domestic violence exposure and children's behavioral outcomes. Results from this meta-analysis conclude a moderate to large association between domestic violence exposure and child behavior outcomes, with experiencing domestic violence being the most highly associated with child behavior outcomes. An analysis of policy, rehabilitation, and intervention programs will be discussed. Recommendations for future domestic violence research are discussed.
