RISK FACTORS 2
Community violence is recognized as a significant public health problem. However, only a paucity of research has examined risk factors for community violence exposure across domains relevant to adolescents or using longitudinal data. This study examined youth aggressive behavior in relation to community violence.

INTERACTIVE CONFLICT 5
Begun primarily with the focus on the study of peace and
prevention of war (Harty & Modell, 1991), the field of conflict resolution has since expanded its influence to all spheres
from family, to business and community, to international relations.
The effort, in fact, has been to shift international conflict
resolution from being primarily the domain of the government
and the military to that of social scientists.
The most difficult aspect of intergroup and international
conflicts is their tendency to become protracted. Azar (1990)
suggests that such conflicts occur “when communities are
deprived of satisfaction of their basic needs on the basis of
their communal identity” (p. 12).
Critics of the workshops again called into question the applicability of a very intense method of human-relations training (the Tavistock model) to the situations of sensitive and volatile intergroup relations(Fisher, 1997).
Azar(1990) suggests that such conflicts occur when “communities are deprived of satisfaction of their basic needs on the basis of their communal identity” (para. 12).
Such conflicts occur when “communities are deprived of satisfaction of their basic needs on the basis of their communal identity” (Azar, 1990, p. 12).
