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.
