Perceptions of Violence: A Youthful Perspective
Ausbrooks, Angela R.
School Social Work Journal, v34 n2 p1-17 Mar 2010
The purpose of this study was to determine the perceptions of violence among youths, specifically as it relates to problem solving and conflict resolution or retaliation. I conducted a qualitative study with adolescents from fourteen to nineteen years old who completed age- and sex-based scenarios involving a peer conflict. The results indicate that, although adolescents are aware of alternative and socially acceptable methods of resolving conflict, they still consider fighting an acceptable, and sometimes necessary, approach to problem solving in certain situations.
