Publicación Bilingüe/ Bilingual Publications (please read the English description below)

En este libro se tratan brevemente algunos trabajos ya publicados sobre la violencia entre niños y adolescentes, y se organizan por grupo de edad y según tipo de entorno las investigaciones hechas sobre factores asociados con la violencia. Asimismo, se examinan los factores ambientales que contribuyen a la violencia y se estudia el papel que tienen los medios de comunicación masiva. Como marco de referencia para comprender su prevención, se presenta un modelo teórico que identifica factores y procesos que conducen a la violencia, o se desprenden de ella. Basados en los componentes de ese modelo, se revisan las investigaciones relativas a la prevención de la violencia en familias, escuelas y comunidades. También se presentan y analizan estudios de casos notorios de los Estados Unidos y Colombia. Finalmente se hacen recomendaciones de acciones futuras destinadas a reducir la violencia infligida por los niños y jóvenes de las Américas, y contra ellos.

English Description

This book briefly discusses several published works on violence among children and adolescents, organizing the research on factors related to violence by age group and type of environment and examining the environmental factors that contribute to violence and the role played by the mass media. It also presents a theoretical model that identifies the factors and processes that lead to violence or follow from it as a frame of reference for understanding how to prevent this phenomenon. Based on the model's components, the study reviews research on violence prevention in families, schools, and communities and analyzes important case studies from the United States and Colombia. Finally, it issues recommendations for future action to reduce violence by and against children and young people in the Americas.
