Patton, Richard H.; And Others
This document reports the findings of Project Respond, a program designed to develop a model for assessing and addressing risk to children in the St. Louis community. Section A concerns: (1) a definition of risk; (2) effects of profound sociological risk on children; (3) social and economic costs of sociological risk. In Section B, the Project Respond program and its research are described in terms of background; project strategy; initial operations; specific functions; and ongoing project operations. Section C presents a model for detailed assessment of risk, and covers the need for detailed assessment; the nature of the assessment model; the model's assumptions, measures, and norms; and technical notes on the assessment model and data analysis. Section D discusses preliminary research findings relating to the demographics of risk; the nature and extent of local risk; current local efforts to address risk; and policy and program options for addressing risk. Section E summarizes major findings and recommendations. Appendix A offers the pilot program model of the Project Respond Educational Pilot Program (PREPP), and Appendix B lists resources and a bibliography of about 65 items. A list of program models is also provided. (SH)
