The Violent Brain: Nature or Nurture?

Each year in the U.S. over 7 million people, mainly women and children, are directly exposed to violence. Are violent people conceived or created? Is there a neurobiological reason that a person is violent?

On Monday, April 25th join KCRW and Santa Monica College Public Policy Institute for a fascinating panel discussion on the brain and its role in violence; featuring Dr. Michael Wilkes of KCRW’s A Second Opinion, James Fallon, Fulbright Fellow and Professor Emeritus of Neuroscience at UC Irvine, Skipp Townsend, co-founder and CEO of 2nd Call, a violence reduction and reentry program based in South Los Angeles, and Gail Wyatt, PhD and professor of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences and Director at Center for Culture, Trauma and Mental Health Disparities at UCLA.

The event will be held at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica at 7pm followed by a Q&A.
