- Private Violence, Public Crisis
- Program Description
Through stories of ordinary people whose lives are affected by violence--as perpetrators and as victims--Private Violence, Public Crisis looks at the causes and tragic impact of acquaintance violence; the myths and underlying behavior patterns; the role of social attitudes and the media in glamorizing violence, as well as ways to stop it. This film reveals that acquaintance violence can include a range of escalating behaviors--from verbal and psychological abuse to physical assault and murder--and demonstrates how police, social service and health care officials are addressing this issue in a new way: as a disease of epidemic proportions. Narrated by Louis Gossett, Jr.
