Overview
In an increasingly violent world, one of the most vital responsibilities of parents, teachers, therapists, and anyone else who comes in contact with today's youth is the detection and prevention of violence among children. Often, however, an unknowing indifference in the upbringing of our children aversely affects their development - and that may encourage violence down the road. This e-book is written for parents who want to know more about protecting their children.
Description
In an increasingly violent world, one of the most vital responsibilities of parents, teachers, therapists, and anyone else who comes in contact with today's youth is the detection and prevention of violence among children. Often, however, an unknowing indifference in the upbringing of our children aversely affects their development—and that may encourage violence down the road. Enter Dr. Kathryn Seifert, Ph.D. In her eBook, How Children Become Violent, Dr. Seifert addresses the causes and effects of youth violence through the lens of Disrupted Attachment Patterns (DAP)—a direct result of interrupting the maturation of behavioral regulation, interpersonal skills, moral development, brain development, and problem-solving. Dr. Seifert explains how a disturbance in any of these areas of growth can invite unwelcome and potentially dangerous consequences. We should all be held accountable for a violence-free future and with this eBook from Dr. Seifert, we're provided with the groundwork to recognize and thwart any signs that may later develop into destructive, senseless patterns of violence.
About the author
Youth and family violence expert Dr. Kathy Seifert is one of the world's leading authorities at predicting which people are most likely to commit a future act of violence. She is the author of the CARE (Child & Adolescent Risk Evaluation) screening tool - one of the world's most accurate predictors of future violence in children and the only assessment of its kind to provide a complete intervention plan to counteract violent tendencies before it's too late. Dr. Seifert is also the author of the RME (Risk Management Evaluation) for Women - the only assessment in the world that identifies violence and sexual abuse risk factors written specifically for women. Dr. Seifert is the CEO of Eastern Shore Psychological Services (ESPS), a multidisciplinary private practice that specializes in working with high-risk youth and their families. She has over 30 years experience in mental health, addictions, and criminal justice work. She specializes in the assessment and treatment of attachment disorders, a condition that can make boys three times as likely to become violent later in life.
