Alternatives to Violence: Empowering Youth To Develop Healthy Relationships
SAGE Publications, Dec 5, 1996 - Psychology - 200 pages
Motivated by the need to stop violence against women and children, the authors of this timely volume argue that the key to preventing interpersonal violence lies in education during that "window of opportunity" -- adolescence.
The authors present a model designed to educate young people about the abuse of power and to assist them in forming egalitarian relationships. Their hope is that as healthier relationships are formed, the overall risk of violence against women and children is reduced and the foundation is laid for future, non-violent relationships.
