David J. Harding op-ed, "Stop youth violence cycle," published in Detroit Free Press

Thursday, August 26, 2010

An op-ed by David J. Harding about the cycle of youth violence was published in the Detroit Free Press. In "Stop youth violence cycle: Fear over safety drives behaviors that lead to confrontation," Harding explains that a reputation for toughness is a source of protection from future victimization and that stopping inner-city youth violence requires a deep understanding of the daily lives of adolescents in our nation's poor communities.
