Causes and Consequences of School Violence - Plenary Discussion, NIJ Virtual Conference on School Safety

On February 16-18, 2021, the National Institute of Justice hosted the Virtual Conference on School Safety: Bridging Research to Practice to Safeguard Our Schools. This video presents one of the plenary panels from the conference. 

To prevent and appropriately respond to incidents of school violence, we must understand what factors contribute to various types of violence and how individuals, both victims and perpetrators, are impacted by that violence.  This discussion includes subject matter experts who have explored the root causes and consequences of school violence from different perspectives and considers policy implications associated with their work.
