This SVJ Bulletin describes some developmental precursors to serious and violent juvenile offending and outlines effective approaches to prevention of such offending. It describes family-, parent-, and child-focused prevention programs and offers examples of well-designed intervention programs. The Bulletin is based on work by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's Study Group on Serious and Violent Juvenile Offenders, which spent 2 years analyzing data collected by long-term studies of juvenile violence.
