Guidance for Student Action Planning helps schools develop Student Action Plans to safeguard all students (bullied, bully or bystander) following incidents involving bullying, teen dating violence, cyber bullying, bullying on the school bus or human trafficking.
The pilot study was instrumental in guiding the development, refinement and implementation of a larger, ongoing efficacy trial of the intervention that is being funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
(Child Welfare Information Gateway) Intimate partner violence is a serious, preventable public health problem that affects millions of Americans.
The term describes physical violence, sexual violence, stalking and psychological aggression (including coercive acts) by a current or former intimate partner.
The researchers adjusted the protocol recruitment strategies, data collection procedures, measures, and program administration, and eliminated the follow-up calls from the health educator.
They also determined that the intervention was reaching the high-risk group: teens who had been exposed to an average of seven years of domestic violence and had high rates of dating violence compared with national averages.
