This document consists of volume 7 of "The Prevention Researcher," a service of Integrated Research Services. Each issue provides information on a specific topic. The topic of Issue Number One is adolescent dating violence. This issue includes articles on adolescents' beliefs about rape and sexual victimization, and contains a report on an adolescent dating violence prevention project. Issue Number Two focuses on the topic of harm reduction. Harm reduction is a controversial approach to substance abuse that targets the consequences of drug use rather than its illegal or addictive status. Articles discuss the pros and cons of this approach. Issue Number Three is devoted to an understanding of inhalant use and the prevention of this toxic form of substance abuse. It presents background information and an understanding of the concerns professionals have about its use. Issue Number Four deals with self-injury, specifically cutting, burning, and otherwise harming one's body through self-inflicted wounds, a pervasive problem among teens. It contains information on how to help those who hurt themselves, how bulimia nervosa may be linked to impulse control disorders, and some reasons why youth engage in self-inflicted violence. The final issue is a supplement containing a cumulative topic index. (Author/JDM)
