Title: Victimization, Violence, and Wellbeing: A Prevention Science Approach
Experiences with violence and victimization shape human development. In this talk, I will provide an overview of my research on victimization and violence as it relates to prevention science. Consistent with the aims of the Prevention Science Program, in this talk, I will discuss my portfolio of interdisciplinary scholarship in terms of its focus on: (1) life-course theory and research, (2) knowledge organization, (3) the development and testing of interventions, and (4) translation to policy and practice. Specifically, I will highlight research that focuses on variability in the consequences of victimization over the life-course, the sources of school violence and victimization, mass shootings, and the development of effective victim services.
