We see it in the images of violence on TV and the internet and too many people have been personally exposed to or have suffered from some form of violence in their own lives. This show addresses the prevention of violence. Experts, Dr. Sherry Hamby and Dr. Victoria Banyard draw upon their new book, Strength Prevention for Violence and Public Health Problems, to look closely at attempts to curb violence and its impact. As Professors and recognized researchers who have dedicated their careers to the study of violence, traumatization, victimization, resilience, and prevention, they discuss why some prevention methods work but others, particularly regarding interpersonal violence, need another model. They will look closely and share examples of why some attempts to motivate young people backfire and why approaches that offer strength building, succeed. They will consider the difference and overlap of resilience and prevention and discuss the value of building a Prevention Portfolio Model to address violence. They discuss new and unexpected methods of prevention including gamification, nudges, and looking beyond the specific problem to broader infrastructure and personal choices. This is a very important show for all. VoiceAmerica | Talk Radio | Online Talk Radio ecards@voiceamerica.com false DD/MM/YYYY Add to Calendar
