Abstract: With attention to issues that precipitate student violence, the authors describe attitudes and situations that often contribute to incidents of aggressive behavior and outline methods for management and prevention. Chapters discuss student-oriented interventions, such as psychological skills training, behavior modification, psychodynamic and humanistic interventions, and gang- oriented interventions. Recognizing school violence as a systems problem, the authors address ways to modify each of the elements that contribute to school violence. They offer detailed guidelines for changing the behavior of peers, school personnel, and family members, as well as ways to modify academic curricula and alter a school's physical features. In addition, they describe how to integrate administrative systems, security personnel, family members, community programs, and State and Federal agencies into response and prevention networks. The book could be useful in graduate-level courses that focus on the psychology of violence and aggressive behavior and the development and implementation of school and community safety programs. 800 references and a subject index
