The Department of Child and Family Studies in Syracuse University’s David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics presented a day-long conference to examine the impact of violence in our community on March 21, 2014
Violence is exploding in many neighborhoods. The people who live surrounded by it—many of whom are children—can be traumatized by the recurring experience of facing death, pain, fear, and loss. The conference, presented by Falk College’s Department of Child and Family Studies, explored this epidemic of violence and the long-term wounds it inflicts on the children who grow up in its shadow. Community experts who deal with violence and trauma offered different perspectives on the problems—and the solutions.
The keynote was presented by Timothy Noble Jennings-Bey, Founder of Identity Research Institute, Director of Trauma Response Team.
