Little research has focused on the termination of assaultive behavior among high-risk children and youth, and on the phenomenology of the young person's own experience. Over a period of nine years Hoffman worked with 20 young participants now between the ages of 20 and 32, jointly exploring their individual and collective pathways out of serious and chronic violence. The study contributes to a common theory of change and rehabilitation for young people who have been seriously violence involved and impacted by trauma.
