Description: Youth violence is a serious social and public health concern, and numerous studies have documented risk factors associated with youth’s exposure to and experiences in violence occurring in multiple contexts. The aim of this CEU course is to enhance social work practitioners’ understanding of youth violence and how various type of violence impact children and adolescents. The major focus will be on child maltreatment, school bullying and victimization, and juvenile justice involvement. We will explore the associated risk factors and outcomes, particularly among diverse children and adolescents (i.e., racial/ethnic minorities, immigrants, LGBTQ, special education, etc.) and the strengths and drawbacks of the current programs and policies.
