BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Forensic psychologist Charles Patrick Ewing will kick off the "UB at Sunrise" breakfast series for the 1998-99 academic year with a discussion of "Preventing and Responding to Violence in our Schools," to be held from 7:30-9 a.m. on Sept. 16 in the Center for Tomorrow on the University at Buffalo North (Amherst) Campus.

In the wake of a number of shootings in American schools, Ewing -- UB professor of law and adjunct professor of psychology -- will examine the nature and extent of violence in our schools today and, using a public-health model, offer suggestions for preventing and responding to such violence.

An expert on juvenile violence, he is the author of "Kids Who Kill" (1990), which predicted juvenile homicide would reach epidemic proportions by the end of the decade.

He has served as a consultant and expert witness in criminal and domestic trials.

A UB faculty member since 1983, Ewing received a law degree from Harvard Law School and a doctorate in child and family psychology from Cornell University.

The cost of the lecture, which includes a full breakfast, is $10 for UB Alumni Association members and $12 for the general public. Deadline for reservations is Sept. 14.

"UB at Sunrise" is supported by the Office of University Development, UB News Services, the Office of Publications and the Office of the Vice President for Public Service and Urban Affairs.
