The Relationship Between Masculinity and Violence

Today our host Mitch Jeserich speaks with Dr. Jeffery Edleson, the dean of the School of Social Welfare at UC Berkeley. We discuss the relationship between men and violence from spaces of domestic and sexual violence all the way to public mass shootings. Much of masculine violence is part of a larger continuum of coercion related to power, and we unpack this gendered relationship in terms of aggression and violence. Dr. Edleson specializes in matters of domestic violence and his expertise involves engaging men in terms of violence prevention.
