Victimization Prevention Programs: A National Survey of Children's Exposure and Reactions.
Finkelhor, David; Dziuba-Leatherman, Jennifer
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v19 n2 p129-40 Feb 1995
Interviews with 2,000 children (ages 10-16) and their caretakers revealed that two-thirds of the children had been exposed to child abuse and victimization prevention programming. Programs that involved practice, prompted discussions with parents, and included information on dealing with bullies were more likely to result in skill utilization. The programs did appear to induce inappropriate worries and fears. (Author/JDD)
