Overview

The statistics are appalling. Between 8% and 10% of U.S. high school students carry guns to school every day. In a typical mid-size city, 30 to 50 cases of school violence are reported daily, and half of these cases involve guns.

School Violence: Assessment, Treatment, Prevention shows us the reality behind the statistics. Its distinguished contributors include leading clinicians, researchers, school counselors, and legal authorities who closely examine every aspect of this complex epidemic, challenging us to solve this multifaceted public health problem and offering concrete recommendations on how to do it.

The comprehensive volume is divided into four parts: • Part I, Contributing Factors, presents the multiple contributing factors, including those involved in creating violent children and violence-prone schools, the nature and context of school violence, and its biological and cultural causes. For example, although the number of violent deaths by shooting in schools remained stable through the 1990s, the number of violent acts against female students increased significantly, as did gang activity and the availability of guns in schools.• Part II, Assessment and Management, details diagnostic assessment, management, and treatment of children and adolescents who have the potential for or have threatened school violence. Eyewitnesses describe the shootings and their aftermaths in Pearl, Mississippi, and Littleton, Colorado, including the extensive measures taken to decrease the traumatic effect of these incidents on the children and adolescents and their families, the educators, and the community at large. Also presented is a model for time-limited, cognitive-behavioral group therapy for those who sustain or witness violent injuries in schools -- a model that could be adapted to other settings.• Part III, Legal Aspects, begins by putting us on notice that anyone aware of a potentially violent act by a youth has a legal responsibility to alert the intended victim(s) and others who could warn or protect them, offering a uniquely insightful view -- by the plaintiff attorney for the victims of school violence in Paducah, Kentucky -- of the Tarasoff case and its ramifications.• Part IV, Prevention, concludes with what we can do now to help prevent school violence, detailing effective prevention measures that range from the innovative (a method that focuses on the school as a whole rather than on individuals and uses a social system and power-dynamics perspective) to the everyday (teaching tolerance and conflict resolution).

Psychiatric practitioners, clinical social workers, pediatricians, art and activity therapists, school counselors and administrators, and other educators and mental health care professionals -- and concerned adults -- who want to help prevent violence in our schools and minimize its traumatic effects on children, parents, and the community at large will appreciate this lucid, in-depth treatment of what has become one of today's most disturbing issues.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ozlem Dubauskas, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: School violence is a subject of nationwide interest. Recently, it has been growing as a scary problem in our society. This book is a comprehensive review of violence in young people.
Purpose: The purpose is to direct attention to violence in schools, explain the underlying mechanisms, and stimulate further research.
Audience: The intended audience is clinicians who work with children and adolescents, teachers, school principals, administrators, politicians, and even parents — practically anybody who has contact with children and adolescents. This book is written by credentialled experts.
Features: The first part attempts to define the extent of the problem and risk factors. The second part includes detailed information about the Columbine school shooting. One of the interesting parts is the diary of a Columbine school social worker. Diagnostic assessment, management, and treatment techniques are also provided in this part. The strategies to deal with people with PTSD after school violence are presented in appropriate language. The third part basically focuses on legal responsibilities in predicting and preventing school violence. Interestingly, one of the authors, a lawyer, gives the legal perspective and the other author, a physician, gives the physician's point of view. The final part covers prevention techniques in a multidisciplinary manner. Strategies for the prevention of school violence in Chicago are taken as an example and presented in great detail. Alternative approaches in prevention of violence are discussed appropriately. The book includes some tables and illustrations to enhance understanding.
Assessment: Approaching a growing problem from different points of view, this book attempts to get every reader to take responsibility in the prevention of school violence. In its attempt to draw attention to this hot subject, this book makes a valuable contribution to the field. It is recommended to those who hope to raise healthy youth and who want to build a healthy future.
William Bernet
In School Violence, The reader can pick and choose among these and many other programs that should be helpful in reducing juvenile violence in schools and communities.
Journal of the American Medical Association
