SESSION I: Contagion of Violence in Multiple Settings

This session will discuss how violence leads to additional violence. This can occur either as a “viral” spread of one act of violence to many acts of violence, or as a “spillover” effect from one setting or type of violence to another. How does the contagion of violence manifest across types of violence? How are types of violence interrelated? Conversely, how can the spread of violence be halted or prevented?

Facilitator: ROWELL HUESMANN, University of Michigan
