5059.0 Violence Prevention In The Family And Community

Wednesday, November 7, 2007: 8:30 AM
The purpose of this session is to add to the existing literature information regarding prevention of violence. The session will present longitudinal data that explores the relationship of early exposure to violence and the development of delinquent behavior and the relationship of language to the development of physical aggression. In addition the session will explore interventions which are effective in the prevention of child abuse, including shaken baby syndrome, and physical aggression in children. These data will be valuable in increasing our knowledge of prevention of violence.
Session Objectives: 1. Articulate the pathways to development of aggressive and delinquent behavior. 2. Describe the effects of public health nursing interventions in prevention of child abuse and aggressive behavior. 3. Recognize methods of preventive intervention in shaken baby syndrome that are effective.
