Santa Fe Boys Educational Foundation is hosting an important conference to address the early origins of male violence. It’s an important topic because most violence is committed by males by a significant margin.
This conference examines the neurobiological, psychological, and social features seemingly unique to or predominant in the development of very young males. The conference addresses the question of how these factors may place boys at greater risk for committing violent acts by looking at the prenatal, infant, and toddler periods.
The conference brings together leading researchers from around the US and Canada to address this question over a three day period in Santa Fe. It provides a unique opportunity for professionals who work with boys and men in the fields of psychology, social work, criminology, child development, and child-oriented or crime-oriented policy to interact with leading researchers about this vital issue to civilization, offering a new perspective.
