Over the course of several years, a protocol for psychoeducational intervention has been implemented, evaluated, and continually refined. The protocol aims to increase adolescents' awareness of the impact of trauma on their functioning, thereby setting the stage for helping them cope more effectively with stress; all in the service of diminishing the likelihood of re-enactment and risk-taking behaviors. This chapter describes the current status of the protocol, its evolution through the process of evaluation, and its potential for wider applications in the community. First, it presents the latest version of the protocol. Second, it traces the course of its evaluation, from a quantitative to a qualitative approach, the latter developed to better validate clinical impressions. Third, it presents a framework to conceptualize the role of this intervention in violence prevention. Finally, some of the implications for future community applications are discussed.
