Adolescent Violence Prevention Resources
The Maternal and Child Health Library released a new edition of the knowledge path, Adolescent Violence Prevention. The knowledge path directs readers to recent resources from the public health, medical, criminal justice, education, and social services literature that measure, document, and monitor adolescent violence; identify risk and protective factors; and report on promising intervention strategies. Separate sections identify resources on specific aspects of adolescent violence: bullying, dating violence, family violence, firearms, gangs, media violence, school violence, suicide, and violent-crime victimization. The path was created for health and social services professionals, educators, policymakers, and community advocates. View the path online at http://www.mchlibrary.info/KnowledgePaths/kp_adolvio.html
