Violence Dynamics

Violence Dynamics is the study of:

(1) Violent social processes and the way individuals and groups violently behave and interact.
(2) The relationships between individual violent interactions and group level violent behaviors.

Violence Dynamics is a social science. That means that the “rules” of violence dynamics are not absolute. They are observations thought to be true. They are not facts that are scientifically determined to be true.

“You must study problems in order to find solutions. If SD techniques are the answers, Violence Dynamics is the study of the problem. I have designed models that I am very happy and successful with, but they are models, not truths.” – Rory Miller
