Violence Prevention
Course Objectives, Outcomes & Other Relevant Information
SocialWorker

Many factors which nurture adolescent violence can be traced to early childhood, and intervention is critical – especially in homes with poverty, single parenthood, poor education, poor resources, and a host of other similar factors typifying the inner city (i.e. lower-income residential district) neighborhoods.

Studies show that children who are witness and victims of violence are:

  • More likely to be abused themselves
  • At a high risk for developmental & mental health problems
  • More likely to become aggressive & violent

According to years of study and research by the World Health Organization (WHO), success in violence prevention in youth – our most valuable commodity - begins with regular home visiting for children between the ages of 0-3 by health care and educational professionals and social workers. The impact of multiple services in high-risk e.g. low income, single parent, poor) homes conveys far beyond the therapeutic intervention of a given physical or speech therapist on a single or multiple domain of normal childhood development. Studies suggest that early such programs are delivered and the longer their duration, the greater the significant long-term effects in reducing violence and delinquency.

Violence prevention is extremely relevant to the early intervention provider of care who is an invaluable ‘eyes and ears,’ and for providing parental education, referral for additional services when needed, and for safety – in the prevention of violence. For example, an early intervention provider, by virtue of their often and intimate access to the home, may often be the first to detect signs that may predispose the home to health and safety concerns such as shaken baby or sudden infant death syndrome. Consequently, learning about how these and other forms of potential violence are detected and prevented is an onus of responsibility – imposed by the State early intervention boards of all States – as imperative upon early intervention providers of care as core to the health and safety requirement incumbent upon them as professionals.

Because of the close relationships developed between the parent, child, and ‘team’ of early intervention professionals, the child is better vouchsafed. The caring import of the interventionist communication, regular visiting, and demonstration of care - both in terms of the number of professionals involved with the child and the duration of years intervention presence in the home surrogates the child’s well being during their most impressionable and vulnerable stages of early growth, serving as a metaphorical bridge until such time that the often until the child transitions to the more comprehensive Counseling Psychology & Special Education (CPSE) school-based program(s), or Early Head Start Programs.
