When the “War Front” and the “Home Front” Collide:
Political Violence, Resilience, and the Family

Cindy Sousa, PhD, MSW, MPH
Assistant Professor

Thursday, November 7th, 2013
6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Bryn Mawr College | GSSWSR
KL Conference Room
300 Airdale Road, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010

Cindy SousaPolitical violence erodes traditional boundaries between the “war front” and the “home front.” Almost 90% of the victims of political violence are civilians, mostly women and children, and the majority of the world’s 20 million refugees and 150 million internally displaced people are fleeing political violence. The increasing reach of political violence into civilian areas poses significant risks to the well-being of families. As parents are rendered helpless to physically or emotionally protect their family from political violence, they experience powerlessness and grief. Political violence has also been implicated in a rise in the perpetration of violence towards women and children. Despite these challenges, however, the family is a central source of protection and resilience within political violence; if equipped with a strong family unit, children can more easily make sense of and recover from political violence. This presentation will focus on the timely issue of family well-being in contexts of political violence.
