  Annotation: In 1996, the Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence (CSPV) at the University of Colorado at Boulder initiated a project to identify juvenile violence prevention programs that could provide the nucleus for a national violence prevention initiative.
Abstract: The CSPV identified 10 prevention and intervention programs that met scientific standards of proven program effectiveness and is in the process of identifying additional programs. The 10 model programs, called Blueprints, have been effective in reducing adolescent violent crime, aggression, and substance abuse. The programs focus on prenatal and infancy nurse home visitation, bullying prevention, alternative thinking strategies, mentoring, educational incentives for disadvantaged teenagers, multisystemic therapy, functional family therapy, drug abuse prevention, life skills training, and multidimensional treatment in foster care. Brief descriptions of each program are provided.
