Summary "Reason to Hope: A Psychosocial Perspective on Violence and Youth" proceeds from the empirically based conviction that violence is not inevitable. Current theory and epidemiological, clinical, and empirical data on violence among youth are examined to help researchers, practitioners, and policymakers make informed decisions about prevention and intervention. /// Experts in the field of violence explore: the etiology of youth violence from developmental and sociocultural perspectives; the experience of violence by ethnic groups and other vulnerable populations, such as gay and lesbian youth and youth with disabilities; the influence of societal factors such as media, guns, and gangs on violence among youth; the most promising, empirically supported preventive and rehabilitative interventions; [and] the most pressing needs for research and policy development in this area. /// By identifying individual and contextual factors influencing violence that are amenable to change, and by exloring how these factors can actually be changed, [this book] lays the groundwork for significant progress toward reducing violence among youth.
