This research will examine clinical social workers (LICSWs) perspectives on the causes of community violence. It is important that clinical social workers have an understanding of the interplay of causes that converge to make a community prone to violence. LICSWs are trained to have an understanding of the ecological perspective and when looking at community violence from this perspective, they can then work towards holistic solutions in their labor with individuals, families, and communities. There are micro, macro, and mezzo causes of violence in communities, therefore, ideally, clinical social workers should work to address the causes at each level.
