|What can be done to address the problem of violence in society? The contributors to this volume, both scholars and practitioners, examine this question by exploring the history of violence together with theoretical explanations. The book discusses such issues as: the disproportionate presence of violence within North American minority populations; the concept of psychological resiliency; how spirituality may serve as a protective factor; and the role of television in promoting violence. The contributors also address prevention and intervention strategies among gangs of young people, and the implementation of special programmes in schools. *Author: Hampton, Robert L./ Jenkins, Pamela/ Gullotta, Thomas *Series Title: Issues in Childrens & Families Lives (Paperback) *Series Number: 4 *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 328 *Publication Date: 1995/11/16 *Language: English *Dimensions: 8.48 x 5.51 x 0.83 inches|
