Reducing Compound Trauma In Hot Spots

CENTERS FOR CONFLICT RESOLUTION PROGRAM -- This project brings trauma informed conflict resolution processes and training and restorative justice practices to children, youth and adults in three COMBAT identified hot spots in Jackson County. This project will serve approximately 600 people in schools, neighborhoods, families and courts. Conflict resolution training and processes are a needed aspect of the full-scale intervention COMBAT is creating. These make a direct contribution to violence prevention efforts by successfully promoting the idea that conflicts can be resolved without violence. Since conflict can and sometimes does lead to violence, conflict resolution effectively reduces violence.
