Paralleling the public concern generated by high-profile school shootings and the growing dialogue about bullying, professionals in school and public health settings need effective strategies for preventing violence, treating victims, and assessing at-risk children. In School Violence and Primary Prevention, more than three dozen clinicians, counselors, educators, and researchers provide readers with multiple levels of understanding on the subject: the scope of school violence, possible roles of the home environment, and the contexts of child/teen/school culture. Various forms of student aggression and antisocial behaviora€”from bullying to sexual harassment to mass shootings (including the Virginia Tech massacre)a€”are discussed in depth, and the book evenly balances theoretical knowledge with practical applications from elementary school to college.

Sociocultural and cross-cultural approaches to prevention. Threat and risk assessment in individuals and schools. The roles of teachers and mental health personnel in prevention and intervention.
