About Us

New York University's The Center on Violence and Recovery is dedicated to advancing knowledge about the causes of violence and researching alternative interventions that galvanize people to take an active role in their recovery. Relying on state-of-the-art research, the center helps communities develop and implement interventions that encourage those who have experienced violence, be it intimate abuse, terrorist attack, or other personal or community trauma, to look frankly at the violence and draw on individual resources, such as family, friends, cultural ties and spiritual beliefs, to heal. Through this approach, the center aims to help rout out entrenched violence and interrupt the transmission of victimization and perpetration from one generation to the next.
