Defending Childhood: Teachers’ and Students' Roles in Preventing and Reducing the Impact of Exposure to Violence on Children

October 16, 1:30 PM ET

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder launched the Defending Childhood initiative on September 23, 2010, to address a national crisis: the exposure of America’s children to violence as victims and as witnesses. Children’s exposure to violence is often associated with long-term physical, psychological, and emotional harm. The Attorney General will participate in a webinar to discuss this initiative and teachers’ role in preventing and reducing the impact of exposure to violence on children.

Due to the sensitivities involved in this discussion, this program is intended for middle and high-school age students.

  • 5 minutes – Prepared remarks from the Attorney General
  • 10 minutes – Remarks from Dr. Marleen Wong and Prof. Tory Cox
  • 15 minutes – Educators' and students' Q&A with Dr. Marleen Wong and Prof. Tory Cox
