This panel explores the availability of national statistics, the burden on care providers to recognize and record a child’s experience with violence, and the challenge of tracking the intergenerational impact of different forms of violence within communities. From their clinical and research perspectives, panelists discuss both successes and deficits in current knowledge and how these impact policymaking. Panelists: Dr. David Finkelhor, Director of the Crimes Against Children Research Center and Co-Director of the Family Research Laboratory at the University of New Hampshire; Dr. Phil Leaf, Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for the Prevention of Youth Violence; Dr. Elizabeth Thompson, Director of Kennedy Krieger Institute’s Family Center; and Dr. Theodore Corbin, Medical Director of the Healing Hurt People violence intervention program and Co-Director of the Center for Nonviolence and Social Justice.
