IHS 270 Violence and Aggression: Deconstructing Youth Violence (3 credits)

The most important responsibility of any society is protecting the welfare of its children. However, many of our youth continue to struggle with violence in their homes, schools, and communities. Many of the current efforts to reduce violence are costly but ineffective; more comprehensive approaches to youth violence are needed. This course attempts to understand violence from both a psychosocial and public health perspective, and in doing so explores alternative, more effective strategies to prevent and reduce youth violence.
