Astor, Ron Avi; Pitner, Ronald O.; Meyer, Heather A.; Vargas, Lorelei A.
Children & Schools, v22 n4 p199-216 Oct 2000
Reports on qualitative analyses on written responses to questions of school violence from school social workers (N=500). Respondents suggest that when a severe and violent event occurs, the entire school community should be cared for in the response. Comments reflect the severe sense of isolation, powerlessness, and despair school staff experience due to lack of school-wide prevention programs. (Author/JDM)
