Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary


This chapter highlights best practices in predicting, preventing, and coping with school violence and provides detailed guidance for forming alliances between students, parents, and school staff and for influencing a nonviolent school environment and culture. We present information on common types of evidence-based interventions and ways that school professionals can adopt an “entire school” approach through systematic monitoring. Finally, we discuss the basic assumptions of systematic school monitoring, providing detailed examples of its application and its utility for system-wide school safety.
