Blueprints for Violence Prevention
(NCJ 187079) July 2001
Bulletin, 16 page(s)
Mihalic, S., Irwin, K., Elliott, D., Fagan, A., Hansen, D.
Provides information on violence prevention and intervention programs that have been proven to be effective in reducing adolescent violent crime, aggressive delinquency, and substance abuse and predelinquent aggression and conduct disorders. This Bulletin describes the criteria established by the Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence (CSPV) to designate these model programs as part of CSPV's Blueprints for Violence Prevention Initiative. The most significant criterion used is evidence of a program's deterrent effect when using a strong research design; a program's sustained effect and multiple site replication are also necessary criteria. The Bulletin outlines the 11 model programs that have met these rigorous standards, provides contact information, and discusses replication and funding resources.
