Joint Sociology, Psychology, Justice Studies colloquium
Youth gun violence is a critical public health problem. The NIH-funded Youth Firearm Risk and Safety Study used a mixed-methods approach to develop and pilot a new comprehensive measure of youth gun exposure.  Participants were 630 youth, ages 2-17, from three high risk communities, who completed a survey on a wide range of firearm access and gun violence exposure. The specific topics of the colloquium include: a) an overview of the variety of ways youth are exposed to guns and gun violence; b) how gun violence exposure is linked to other forms of victimization and its association with trauma symptomatology; and c) the safety practices families utilize to keep kids safe from guns.
