Differences in the Risk Assessment of Chronic Violence: Building Risk and Resilience Models for African American and White Youth
While a great deal of research has been conducted on the risk and resilience factors in youth, there is limited research on the differences in these factors between cultures, ethnicities, and gender. The current researcher hoped to provide documentation of the different risk and resilience factors for White, Latino, and African American male and female youth, towards the goal of presenting solutions to youth violence in all groups. By determining ethnic differences in risk and resilience factors, it should be possible to give them appropriate weights within the CARE-2 assessment, thus reducing bias and increasing predictability of future chronic violence. By accurately predicting which youth are most likely to become violent based on risk factors, preventive measures can be put in place to minimize incidents of violence among high-risk youth.
