The Effectiveness of the Warning Signs Program in Educating Youth About Violence Prevention: A Study with Urban High School Students.
The effectiveness of the Warning Signs program in educating urban high school youth about the signs of potential violence in themselves and others was studied. No differences were found with exposure to the program. Rather, students in all groups identified certain personality traits that are suggestive of violence, but ignored family, school, and social contributors. Suggestions for school counselors using this program are presented along with a discussion of the program’s limitations. **********
