Prevention

 
 

Experts in youth violence prevention do not have all the answers for solving this public health problem; we must do a lot more research and evaluation. But we know enough to offer the public some insight into what works to prevent violence by children and adolescents. The Institute is experienced in working with schools, community leaders and concerned stakeholders, to develop a grouping of strategies (and, therefore, of various kinds of interventions) designed to prevent youth violence. For example, a community might combine a school-based curriculum with a home-visiting intervention.
