Teen Violence in America attempts to explain the epidemic rise and complex underlying causes of youth violence, as well as open a discussion on strategies to protect our children from physical and emotional harm.

Teen Violence in America seeks to identify those circumstances that can place youths at risk for violent behavior, what ignites this predilection into violent action, and to identify strategies that can be employed to mitigate the damage and put them on a positive life track. From family life to school environment and opportunities, cultural and political influences, drugs and gangs, Teen Violence in America looks deeply into the different factors contributing to this epidemic.
