Book Description American Psychological Association, United States, 2006. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Preventing Violence: Research and Evidence-Based Intervention Strategies is the only book available that offers current data-based analyses from leaders in violence prevention with a strong scientific perspective. The contributors examine a range of violence that occurs in our culture, including child maltreatment, youth violence, intimate partner violence, and suicide. Because evidence shows that a cycle of violence seems to begin with child maltreatment - which includes not only child physical and sexual abuse but also neglect - the contributors examine the possibility of connecting the disparate intervention areas in both research and practice. The contributors often draw on large-scale studies conducted by the government in their discussions of approaches to violence prevention. The suggested research and intervention programs highlight the role of cultural competence, a phenomenon whose importance has been determined empirically. Violence is a serious public health problem that can be prevented. This book offers methods to accomplish that goal through programs at all levels of society, from school-based interventions to changes in government policy. Psychologists, public health officials, and policy makers working to stop violence will find it an invaluable resource for science-based solutions. Seller Inventory # AAN9781591473428
