Advances in the field of prevention described in the previous chapter offer great promise for practitioners and policy makers interested in preventing violent behavior in children and youth. Importantly, the adoption of a risk and protection model of prevention has increased the quality and availability of interventions aimed at preventing violence.Chapter 8 describe effective school, family, and community level violence prevention approaches. Strategies to diffuse effective programs to school, family, and community contexts are delineated and discussed.

Keywords:   risk and protection, prevention of violence, program effectiveness, policy change, fidelity, dissemination of research, adoption, adaptation of prevention programs
