Symposium on Causes of Youth Violence Held

A symposium on reducing youth violence was held in the North Side on Thursday. It will continue on Friday.

About a hundred social workers, teachers, clergy and those in the mental health field gathered to hear speakers talk about violence in Pittsburgh and projects to reduce it, ways to respond to the cycle of violence and trauma, working with violent youth, constructing and maintaining a non-violent environment and tools for therapists to work with troubled youth.

The symposium was free and held at the Manchester Bidwell Corporation.
