This product includes two updated needs assessments for both early elementary students as well as a predictive risk survey for upper elementary through middle school students. These tools can be used to help target students for individual or group counseling in schools. Both surveys are based on the US Surgeon General's 2001 report on youth violence from Chapter 4 -- "Risk Factors for Youth Violence". The goal is to identify students early in order to provide interventions to provide more protective factors.
This second edition includes better worded and additional questions.
