School Personnel Responses to Children Exposed to Violence
Kenemore, Thomas; Lynch, John; Mann, Kimberly; Steinhaus, Patricia; Thompson, Theodore
School Social Work Journal, v35 n1 p60-82 Sep 2010
Authors explored the experiences of school personnel in their responses to children's exposure to violence. Thirty-one school personnel, including administrators, teachers, counselors, school social workers, and psychologists, were interviewed to obtain data on their experiences related to violence exposure in their schools and the surrounding communities. Grounded theory research method was utilized to guide data collection and analysis. Discussion includes the perceived extent of violence exposure, overall adaptation to it, and perceived general essential response characteristics. The findings suggest that a systemic response to violence in the schools and in the community will be required to effect positive change overall.
