Abstract

Prevention has long been an important topic in the field of clinical psychology (Greenberg, Domitrovich, & Bumbarger, 2001; Price et al., 1988). Violence prevention is particularly important to clinical psychology given the strong associations between violence exposure and psychological distress. We begin this chapter by defining violence prevention and identifying its core principles and applications. We then review landmark studies and research evidence for their effectiveness. Issues of diversity across social and cultural groups are also addressed. Finally, we identify major accomplishments in the field and predict future directions for three key areas of clinical psychology: practice, training, and research.
