Addressing Youth Violence
Maybe it’s a story you saw on the news about a crime in another neighborhood, or just maybe it’s your next door neighbor, or your son. Youth violence affects every neighborhood and violent youth live in all different types of households. The reasons teens turn violent are as varied as the teens themselves, but there are warning signs, socio-economic conditions and behavior patterns that can help predict which kids might turn violent. And along with the prediction comes hope for prevention and treatment. Join us on Wednesday when we learn more about youth violence. This is an archive edition of the show, so we won’t be taking calls today.
