NIH convenes state-of-the-science conference on preventing youth violence

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) will hold a State- of-the-Science Conference on Preventing Violence and Related Health-Risking Behaviors in Adolescents, October 13-15, 2004 at the Natcher Conference Center on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland.

Many prevention and intervention programs to address violence and related youth behavior problems have developed out of need and have not been rigorously evaluated for their safety and effectiveness. Moreover, interventions with demonstrated effectiveness appear to be underutilized. Research has progressed at a rapid pace; it is now appropriate to assess the state of science with regard to interventions to reduce the risk for youth violence and related behavior problems, as well as to reduce problem behavior once it has been initiated. While research focused on what works is critical, it is equally important to assess what has been learned about interventions that do not work.

The conference will bring together researchers and practitioners from the many fields involved in violence prevention and related issues of adolescent health, to examine the evidence available to answer six key conference questions:

    1. What are the factors that contribute to violence and associated adverse health outcomes in childhood and adolescence?

    2. What are the patterns of co-occurrence of these factors?

    3. What evidence exists on the safety and effectiveness of interventions for violence?

    4. Where evidence of safety and effectiveness exists, are there other outcomes beyond reducing violence? If so, what is known about effectiveness by age, sex, and race/ethnicity?

    5. What are the commonalities among interventions that are effective, and those that are ineffective?

    6. What are the priorities for future research?

During the first day and part of the second day of the conference, experts will present the latest research findings in the area to
