Preventing Violence Against Women And Children

by Institute of Medicine, Preventing Violence Against Women And Children Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Preventing Violence Against Women And Children books, Violence against women and children is a serious public health concern, with costs at multiple levels of society. Although violence is a threat to everyone, women and children are particularly susceptible to victimization because they often have fewer rights or lack appropriate means of protection. In some societies certain types of violence are deemed socially or legally acceptable, thereby contributing further to the risk to women and children. In the past decade research has documented the growing magnitude of such violence, but gaps in the data still remain. Victims of violence of any type fear stigmatization or societal condemnation and thus often hesitate to report crimes. The issue is compounded by the fact that for women and children the perpetrators are often people they know and because some countries lack laws or regulations protecting victims. Some of the data that have been collected suggest that rates of violence against women range from 15 to 71 percent in some countries and that rates of violence against children top 80 percent. These data demonstrate that violence poses a high burden on global health and that violence against women and children is common and universal. Preventing Violence Against Women and Children focuses on these elements of the cycle as they relate to interrupting this transmission of violence. Intervention strategies include preventing violence before it starts as well as preventing recurrence, preventing adverse effects (such as trauma or the consequences of trauma), and preventing the spread of violence to the next generation or social level. Successful strategies consider the context of the violence, such as family, school, community, national, or regional settings, in order to determine the best programs.

Preventing Violence In Schools

by Joan N. Burstyn, Preventing Violence In Schools Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Preventing Violence In Schools books, School violence is a burning issue these days. This book provides an in-depth analysis of violence prevention programs and an assessment of their effectiveness, using data from observations, individual interviews, and focus groups, as well as published data from the schools. It is distinguished by its focus on the cultural and structural context of school violence and violence prevention efforts. Where most other researchers use quantitative measures, such as surveys, to assess the effectiveness of violence prevention programs, the authors of this book use qualitative research and ethnography to study the environment where such programs take place. Thus, this work--one of only a few ethnographic studies of violence prevention programs in schools--links previous quantitative research on the topic and critical ethnography. Preventing Violence in Schools: A Challenge to American Democracy: *includes voices of school students, accused of practicing violence, who have been participants in violence prevention programs; *analyzes a citywide peer mediation program (who benefits and who does not, who is mediated and who mediates, and what the implications of these findings may be); *examines the kinds of violence recognized in schools and the ways schools themselves may perpetuate violence; and *describes a violence prevention program for students at an alternative school. Preventing Violence in Schools: A Challenge to American Democracy is highly relevant for students in courses on urban education, foundations of education, education and social policy, youth and the law, and qualitative research, and for teachers, administrators, and other professionals, such as school psychologists and guidance counselors, at the middle and high school levels.

Preventing Violence

by John R. Lutzker, Preventing Violence Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Preventing Violence books, "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. 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 and 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 policymakers working to stop violence will find it an invaluable resource for science-based solutions"--Jacket.
