The present work summarizes the main psychological assessment areas in children and adolescents exposed to domestic violence. The characteristics of the violence, its effects on the mental health and daily functioning of children and adolescents, and individual, family and social mediating variables are focal areas in the assessment process. The idea of considering children exposed to domestic violence in the assessment-intervention process is highlighted. Various instruments suitable for assessing the relevant variables are proposed.
