Abstract Ninety-six students at a high school in a major urban setting were assessed for exposure to violent crime, resultant stress symptoms, and use of social support and coping strategies to moderate the symptoms. Rates of exposure and symptomatology were found to be high, and aspects of the moderating factors were significantly related to amount and severity of symptoms. Directions for further research are outlined and implications for intervention are noted.
