SCHOOL-BASED CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION PROGRAMS

MARLA R. BRASSARD AND CHRISTINA M. FIORVANTI

Child abuse is a leading cause of emotional, behavioral, and health problems across the lifespan. It
is also preventable. School-based abuse prevention programs for early childhood and elementary
school children have been found to be effective in increasing student knowledge and protective
behaviors. The purpose of this article is to help school psychologists understand the potential
positive impact of abuse prevention programs in their school, choose a high-quality program for
their population, and be aware of the practical considerations of implementation. C  2014 Wiley
