Over a (Gun) Barrel: Roles and Responses in Violence Prevention

Keynote Speaker: Jaleel Abdul-Adil, Ph.D.

This introductory workshop will present a professional provider framework for perspectives and practices in violence prevention that was developed at the Urban Youth Trauma Center (UYTC) at the University of Illinois at Chicago, a site in the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).  Adapted from the World Health Organization violence prevention model, UYTC has constructed a socio-ecological model of trauma-informed violence prevention and intervention to serve a continuum of public and mental health needs related to community violence exposure, perpetration, and victimization.

The workshop will apply the UYTC violence prevention model to addressing gun violence in contemporary urban contexts.  Topics will also include historical contexts, socio-political dynamics, peer group influences, and other contemporary factors that can both contribute to current crisis as well as support best practice solutions.
