Abstract: Youth violence is currently viewed as one of the most serious public health problems in the United States. What is of even more concern among parents and educators is a more common and pervasive form of violence- bullying. Bullying is an early form of aggressive, violent behavior. An in-depth analysis of the school shootings occurring over the past decade has shown a strong correlation to experiences with bullying. Although many schools have implemented crisis prevention plans that are reactive in nature, many remain without a program specifically addressing the problem of bullying.
