Youth Violence – A different approach (Eleuthera Lisch)
Youth violence prevention leader Eleuthera Lisch talks about Dr. Joseph E. Marshall, Jr’s Alive and Free program in the YMCA of Greater Seattle. Join us as Eleuthera shares her 13 years of experience working with gang members and helps us gain a better awareness and understanding of what makes all of us susceptible to catching the disease of violence. While most of us can feel compassion and empathy for victims of violence, we’ll discuss how we can tune into these emotions for the perpetrators?
