New Information From the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention:

“Survey Finds Youth Benefit From Violence Prevention Programs.  Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal has published “Youth Exposure to Violence Prevention Programs in a National Sample.” This paper is based on research from the National Survey of Children's Exposure to Violence (NatSCEV), a study that OJJDP sponsors on the prevalence of children’s exposure to violence. The survey findings show that two-thirds of children ages 5–9 and three-quarters of youth 10–17 years old have benefitted from formal bullying or violence prevention programs. The researchers found that school-age children had lower levels of both peer victimization and perpetration, while older youth made more disclosures about victimization to parents and authorities.”
