Project LINK: Improving Risk and Protective Factors through Comprehensive Services
Cross, Jennifer E.; Mohajeri-Nelson, Nazanin; Newman-Gonchar, Rebecca
Journal of School Violence, v6 n2 p23-55 2007
This article describes the outcomes of Project LINK, a Safe Schools/Healthy Students grantee in Larimer County, Colorado. The study analyzed the influence of policies and administrative support on the implementation of programs as well as on risk and protective factors predictive of violent behaviors and drug and alcohol use. Results showed increased feelings of safety in comparison to the rest of the state and changes in risk and protective factors by school level. Results also indicate that leadership support and enforcement of policies are associated with successful adoption, implementation, and positive behavioral outcomes. (Contains 8 tables.)
