According to the National Criminal Justice Reference Service, the number of homicide victims ages 15-17 has declined, but the percentage killed by firearms remains high. To hear of a school killing or shooting anywhere is tragic. However it often has an even greater impact when that violence hits close to home. Access to federally funded programs for preventing violence; school counseling; and programs such as Children, Youth, and Families (CYF) for difficult youths aren't always enough to manage their deep needs. Join Tamara Hill, a licensed and trauma certified child and adolescent therapist, as she explains why we must come together as a community to not only understand the violent behavior but diminish it. In this first session of a two-part series, Tamara will provide a multi-dimensional perspective and explore some of the potential reasons why violent youths fall through the cracks of our school systems.
