From the highest profile acts of cold blooded murder to everyday incidents on our neighbourhood streets, Harm's Way puts a human face on the problem of youth violence. This video features personal accounts from people whose lives have been changed by youth violence, both victims and offenders. Interviews with prominent psychologists, criminologists, social workers, law enforcement and probation officers, explore issues and influences that are affecting the violent behaviour of our children. Harm's Way takes a probing look at the effects of early childhood experiences, the media, our consumer culture and changing societal and family structures. This in-depth study also profiles intervention programs and group sessions with "at risk" youth that shed light on what we can all do to keep our children out of Harm's Way.
