  1. School violence : Prevalence and intervention strategies for at-risk adolescents.

    Article - En anglais

    This study investigated the effects of social-cognitive group intervention on violence avoidance beliefs among at-risk adolescents.

    Fifty high school students were randomly assigned to an experimental or a control group.

    The experimental group participated in ten, 2-hour weekly sessions of a social-cognitive intervention.

    Both groups were administered a questionnaire before, immediately following, and 3 months after the intervention.

    Findings showed that the social-cognitive intervention did not result in significant differences between the groups on violence avoidance beliefs at posttest or follow-up.

    In addition, drug/alcohol users and nonusers, fighters and nonfighters, and students threatened at school and those not threatened were compared.

    Students who used drugs/alcohol and fought in school had significantly lower scores (i.e., a greater belief in using violence as a coping technique) than did students who did not engage in those behaviors.
