Crime & Violence in Schools -- Research Starters Sociology

By: Wienclaw, Ruth A.;

2009 / EBSCO


Children and youth today are exposed to a wide range of factors that have been associated with violence not only within the home, but within the culture as well. Children who display aggressive behavior are at higher risk for delinquency, substance abuse, dropping out of school, early parenthood, and depression later in life. However, in most cases, aggression and violence do not occur without warning. The four stages that have been identified in the literature are: Frustration, defensiveness, aggression, and self-control. Appropriate intervention early in the cycle can often help prevent aggression from escalating and break the cycle. There are a number of programs that have been developed recently that show promise for reducing the amount of violence in schools by promoting learning, maintaining appropriate socialization and confronting behavioral challenges that are commonly faced in schools.
