Promoting Prevention: Evaluating a Multi-Agency Initiative of Youth Consultation and Crime Prevention in Swansea
Case, Stephen; Haines, Kevin
Children & Society, v18 n5 p355-370 Nov 2004
The multi-agency, multiple intervention Promoting Prevention initiative to prevent youth offending in Swansea was evaluated with a computer-based interactive questionnaire with 580 young people (aged 11-18). Results indicate that multiple exposure to risk factors within the main domains of the young person's life (for example, family, school) significantly increases the likelihood that a young person will become involved in problem behaviours. In contrast, exposure to multiple protective factors decreases the likelihood of these behaviours. Evaluation indicates that Promoting Prevention's consultative methodology is an empowering and engaging way of targeting interventions to promote positive behaviours and prevent anti-social behaviour in young people.
