    Magdalena Cerda – Violence Intervention Study

    My name is Magdalena Cerda. I’m an associate professor at the University of California at Davis. My research tries to figure out what’s the optimal approach to prevent urban violence. So one of the leading approaches to prevent urban violence has been to invest in targeted policing in the most violent city neighborhoods. However there’s a lot of concern about police abuse. And this has led to a call for alternative approaches to violence prevention. One of the leading alternative approaches has been Cure Violence. In Cure Violence what are called interrupters and outreach workers who actually come from communities themselves, work with family members and friends of victims of…

    What is TRAUMA THERAPY?

    Hey everybody! I have an amazing special guest Dr. Alexa Altman is here to talk with us about what is trauma and resiliency. Since this is the first of many videos that Alexa and I are going to do together tell my audience a little bit about what you do and what your specializations are. I’m a clinical psychologist with a specialization in trauma therapies specifically, EMDR and somatic experiencing and both of those therapies help a person move out of the overwhelm that happens after a traumatic experience back into connection with their bodies, connection with other people, and a greater connection to their life. Very cool. Yeah, and…

    The incredible history of the 2nd Amendment and America’s gun violence problem | Jill Lepore

    One of the more interesting theories about the nature of gun violence in the United States and the quite high homicide rate in the United States, both of which distinguish the United States from other similar nations, has to do with at what moment in time the United States became independent and why the Second Amendment ends up in the Bill of Rights, which is written by Madison. In the theory it is that most states, that is nation states, pursued a historical course that led to the state having a monopoly on violence before the state became fully democratized, that is to say the government essentially seizes the weapons…

    Preventing Firearm-Related Injury and Death: A Targeted Intervention

    [MUSIC PLAYING] Welcome to preventing firearm-related injury and death, a targeted intervention. My name’s Garen Wintemute. I’m an ER doc and I became involved in firearm-violence prevention because I believe there is a moral imperative to prevent firearm-related harm that’s every bit as compelling as the moral imperative to treat it. There is a practical reason too. Most people who die from firearm injuries never make it to the hospital. They die where they’re shot. To prevent deaths from firearms, we need to prevent people from getting shot in the first place. I’m Emmy Betz, and I’m joining the conversation from the University of Colorado, School of Medicine.
