Title:Assistant Professor
Children, adolescents, and families living in volatile homes or communities have a unique set of issues, needs, and concerns. Nurses and other health care providers, as well as interdisciplinary community-based professionals must address and attempt to effectively promote the healing and restoration of individuals, families, and communities who have self-reported actual, previous or past, and who are at-risk for exposure to violence and trauma. In many cases especially among these vulnerable populations there exist sharp disparities in access to health care and provision of multidisciplinary  or inter-disciplinary community-based services and resources. There are relatively few empirical and rigorously evaluated interventions or programs designed for children and youth who have self-disclosed exposures to various forms of violence and trauma in the broader community. In responses to meeting the needs of these youth and their families, faculty members at Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI, have partnered with local, state, national, and international colleagues to develop a structured injury prevention, violence reduction and healthy conflict resolution intervention called The Safer Tomorrows Project.
