Back to Youth Violence: Interventions for Health Care Providers
By Robert D. Ketterlinus, PhD
Youth Violence outlines a three-step approach towards youth violence prevention: 1) identify and describe the problem; 2) develop and evaluate interventions to prevent the problem; and 3) implement those interventions in the community.
The text aims to:
- Advance the field of youth violence prevention
- Inform a health care audience about the opportunities, benefits, and challenges in addressing violence among injured young patients
- Provide an empirical and practical understanding of issues in developing an Emergency Department-based collaborative program
- Illustrate tested program models that can be replicated or adapted by others in addressing youth violence
Youth Violence is intended for health care professionals in medicine, social work, and mental health, as well as administrators, advocates, and community service providers.
