About the Course
This course aims to provide an understanding of gangs, their culture, how different gangs relate to one another, and how individuals can escape from seemingly inescapable gang culture. This course is well suited to professionals, such as social workers and law enforcement agents, who work with clients who may be involved in gangs, and may wish to escape the culture associated with gangs. Teachers, as well as school support staff, may also benefit from this course, as it may enable them to better understand and help their students.
