What Works to Prevent Youth Violence: Key Findings
Youth violence is broadly defined as violence that takes between individuals aged 10 to 29 years old. It can take many forms (i.e. physical and non-physical) and occurs most often in community settings between acquaintances and strangers (World Health Organisation, 2020).
This paper focuses on primary prevention - preventing violence before it happens, through interventions that target key risk factors for violence perpetration and experiences.
