Friendship Perceptions Among Students Who Experience Violence at Home

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 6
  • Skill Level: Introduction
  • Session 7: Psychological Services for Specific Groups of Students

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. recognize how witnessing violence can impact student's relationships.
  2. interact with and design support programs for students who have witnessed violence.
  3. assess if students who have witnessed violence foster hostile attributions to others' actions and perceive less friendly students at school.


How does witnessing violence at home impact students at school? I will discuss how aggressive tendencies in students who have witnessed violence at home may interact to predict the number of perceived friends at school. Practitioners will hear considerations to be made when working with students who have been exposed to violence.
