CE Course Description
High levels of violence across the U.S. compared with other countries suggest that there are beliefs, values, and policies underlying our national culture that, if better understood and thoughtfully discussed, could reduce violence. Furthermore, whether violence takes the form of delinquency, suicide, or domestic violence, there are many common predictors that represent many of the forms of trauma experienced by children and youth incorporated as “adverse childhood experiences,” but the set of predictors goes beyond the factors that are consistently found associated with higher levels of violence. This CE course provides a review of research and evaluation studies, as well as promising and proven interventions, to identify programs, policies, and practices that can contribute to reducing high levels of violence in the United States.
