This resource guide brings together the latest available information on Latino adolescent violence prevention efforts and existing resources in Latino communities. It seeks to help maternal and child health (MCH) professionals better address the specific needs of Latino youth and their families by presenting ethnic-specific factors for violence-prevention practice, policy, and research. The guide opens with a demographic profile of Latinos and a discussion of the impact of violence on Latino youth. It outlines the risk factors for violence in Latino communities and considers the role of culture in risk and resiliency. Developing effective violence prevention programs for Latino youth is addressed, as are the roles of MCH and other public health professionals. A list of selected Latino organizations with model programs addressing youth violence contains contact information. (Contains 52 references.) (SLD)
