Description

This mixed-methods study explored the perceptions of law enforcement officers, mental health therapists, and teachers regarding juvenile violence. The professionals determined the most important risk and protective factors of violent juvenile offending to target intervention and prevention services. The professionals overwhelmingly recommended targeted services for parent involvement. Other key areas included mental health services, restrictions/monitoring social media, substance/alcohol abuse prevention, and prosocial peers. These findings can lead to positive social change by potentially reducing the crime rate in society.
