Community Violence, Adolescent Aggression and Academic Achievement

Many youth in urban environments arrive at school having experienced the effects of complex trauma from their homes and communities, only to find that their trauma goes unrecognized and may be inadvertently exacerbated in school environments that are not prepared to deal with the trauma they have experienced. These youth may manifest externalizing behaviors, including aggressive behaviors, which lead to unique academic challenges in school contexts. Dr. Finigan-Carr will discuss these issues and provide suggestions as to how they may be addressed.
