Runtime: 01:16:31
Description: Violence is epidemic in urban communities and has a disproportionate impact on African American men. In-depth qualitative interviews with young victims of violence reveal both the deep scars of early adversity as well as the persistent physical and psychological scars that result from violent injury. The stories that emerge from their traumatic experiences defy the often simplistic and stereotypical images held by providers and the public at large. In this presentation, we will examine the narratives of young victims as a means to uncover new, trauma-informed approaches to addressing and preventing the causes and consequences of urban violence.

The NIH Director's Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series includes weekly scientific talks by some of the top researchers in the biomedical sciences worldwide.
