The Effectiveness of Victimization Prevention Instruction: An Evaluation of Children's Responses to Actual Threats and Assaults.
Finkelhor, David; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v19 n2 p141-54 Feb 1995
Interviews with 2,000 youths (ages 10-16) and their caretakers examined whether instruction at school or home about how to prevent victimization impacted on children's behavior in real victimization attempts. Children exposed to comprehensive school-based or home-based instruction were more likely to use recommended self-protection strategies and to disclose to someone about the victimization attempt.
