Violent Events: School Social Workers' Perception and Response
Cawood, Natalie Diane
School Social Work Journal, v37 n2 p21-36 Mar 2013
This article reports findings from a national web-based survey of 250 members of the School Social Work Association of America (SSWAA). This study examines the types of violent events reported by school social workers and the practitioner's perception of the problem of interpersonal violence in the school context. It identifies interventions being implemented to address the problem of school violence. Results of this study indicate that school social workers are simultaneously implementing many different types of violence intervention strategies. Practitioners who perceived a "very big" or "big" problem with violence at their schools reported the greatest number of types of violent events. (Contains 8 tables and 1 figure.)
