Violence is a serious problem on our streets, in our schools, in many homes, and between nations. This book describes the extent of the problem, the causes of violence, and the steps each of us can take to prevent it.

If you are concerned about mass shootings, domestic abuse, terrorism, wars, or suicide, this book shows how the same prevention strategies can be used to prevent several types of violence.

This book uses language that is easy to understand, and it is intended as a resource for policymakers, legislators, concerned citizens, and community or religious groups that want to find ways to reduce violence in their communities and around the world. It could be used to stimulate discussion in small groups or to help someone prepare a presentation.

It demonstrates the need for resolving conflicts in the early stages. It describes ways to address the underlying conditions that tend to predispose a person to violence and how to modify responses to triggering events that might cause a violent response.

The book also identifies several resources that can be helpful for people who want to get involved in prevention activities, and it discusses the use of various defensive strategies that can be used to reduce the chance of violence.

There is also a chapter that outlines some of the changes that could be made in our society to reduce violence.

Some chapters also specifically address terrorism, civil conflicts, and international conflicts and show how they can also be dealt with using the same strategies.
