Abstract

Community violence is recognized as a significant public health problem. However, only a paucity of research has examined risk factors for community violence exposure across domains relevant to adolescents or using longitudinal data. This study examined youth aggressive behavior in relation to community violence.

INTERACTIVE CONFLICT 5 Begun primarily with the focus on the study of peace and prevention of war (Harty & Modell, 1991), the field of conflict resolution has since expanded its influence to all spheres from family, to business and community, to international relations. The effort, in fact, has been to shift international conflict resolution from being primarily the domain of the government and the military to that of social scientists. The most difficult aspect of intergroup and international conflicts is their tendency to become protracted. Azar (1990) suggests that such conflicts occur “when communities are deprived of satisfaction of their basic needs on the basis of their communal identity” (p. 12).

Paraphrase

In your own wordsCite with author and year of publication

Critics of the workshops again called into question the applicability of a very intense method of human-relations training (the

Tavistock

model) to the situations of sensitive and volatile intergroup relations

(Fisher, 1997).

Block Quote

Contrary to conclusions reported by Dylan (1979) and Forbes (1980), new research demonstrated many things about placebo effects on behaviors.

The placebo effect, which had been verified in previous studies, disappeared when behaviors were studied in this manner. Earlier

studies were clearly premature in attributing the results to a placebo effect. (Smith, 1982, p. 234)

Such future work must be both methodologically and scientifically sound.

Slide14

Citing multiple authors

Use ‘&’ in parenthetical citations One authorTwo authorsThree to five authors (first citation) Six and more authors

Jones and Smith (2000) or (Jones & Smith, 2000)

(Williams, Jones, Smith, & Torrington, 2003)

(Williams et al., 2003)

Smith (2002) or (Smith, 2002)

Slide15

Citing an indirect source

Name the original source in your signal phrase.List the secondary source in your reference listInclude the secondary source in the parentheses.

Levine (1998) (as cited in Barr, 2000) feels that students often fail tomaximize their potential.

Reference list: Use secondary source (Barr).
