Targeted programs may halt adolescent, partner sexual violence

“The results of this research show that it is possible to prevent intimate partner violence among youth and we have the tools we need to make a difference,” Lundgren said in a press release. “Our review suggests that working in schools and supporting children and adolescents who have been exposed to violence prevents violence in high income countries such as the United States. It is imperative that we invest resources to adapt and test these successful approaches in other settings to tackle the global problem of violence.”
