Urban Youth Trauma : Using Community Intervention to Overcome Gun Violence, Hardback Book

Urban Youth Trauma : Using Community Intervention to Overcome Gun Violence Hardback


Trauma has unfortunately become an all-too familiar occurrence in the lives of children, with a majority of youth experiencing a traumatic event before the age of 18.

With the rise of school shootings and recent March for Our Lives, this timely book will address intervention strategies for social workers and counselors to combat this negative phenomenon.

Urban Youth Trauma focuses on urban violence and guns, while due attention is also paid to other forms of trauma in order to ground violence-related trauma within the constellation of multiple forms of trauma.

Violence, and more specifically that related to guns, is very much associated with urban centers and youth of color. Divided into three parts, this volume traces the roots of urban youth trauma.

Parts I and II provide context and foundation for the problem and intervention strategies.

Part III takes the reader through a variety of intervention strategies directly related to the community's assets.

The strength of Urban Youth Trauma's lies in its focus on the community itself as the key to survival, resilience, and change.
