APHA - YOUTH VIOLENCE
Youth Violence: Interventions for Health Care Providers
|Publication Date:||1 June 2008|
This book reflects and contributes to an interdisciplinary public health approach towards youth violence prevention that involves a three-step process: 1) identify and describe the problem; 2) develop and evaluate interventions to prevent the problem; and 3) implement those interventions in the community. The book also addresses theory, current research and operational guidance on ways Emergency Departments might use a public health approach to responding to intentional violence involving youth.
