Violence and Bullying Prevention
This is an evidence-based prevention service designed to enhance social interaction and conflict-resolution skills. Empathy, impulse control, and anger management are the foundation for healthy social interaction and are fundamental to an effective social skills enhancement program. This program is provided to youth in grades 4-8 in schools in nine Tennessee communities (Bedford, Bradley, Coffee, Hamilton, Marion, Robertson, Rutherford, Montgomery, Stewart). Prevention Specialists meet weekly with youth in the full classroom setting.
All youth in classrooms selected by school staff to receive the services are eligible.
