Research findings from St. Louis and other cities will identify the extent and type of victimizations occurring both in the community and in schools. Evidence-based policies and programs for violence reduction will also be discussed. Speakers will examine three main themes: youth victimization in the community, youth victimization and bullying at school, and strategies for reducing violence and school and in the community.
Attendance is beneficial for professionals who work with at-risk youth, teachers, counselors, public health workers, probation officers, youth advocates, law enforcement officers, students, and anyone interested in the welfare of children and youth.
