    Young black men in Philadelphia and in cities across the country are overwhelmingly the victims and perpetrators of violent crime. And oftentimes, their physical wounds are accompanied by serious trauma that contributes to an ongoing cycle of violence. TED CORBIN and JOHN RICH are two Philadelphia physicians/researchers who are studying, caring for and working with young black men in Philadelphia to help them cope with and recover from the trauma associated with violent injuries. They are both affiliated with the Drexel University School of Public Health’s Center for Nonviolence and Social Justice.
