Much of the violence prevention literature is about interventions to prevent or treat violent behavior in individuals or groups. This work is to be applauded! Interventions have advanced a long way from the declaration a few decades ago that “nothing works” (Martinson, 1974). So many interventions happen now that there are reviews of reviews and meta-analyses across studies (Lipsey and Cullen, 2007). This is good news for violence prevention and treatment globally.
