Beginning with an understanding of the causes and origins of violence on Americas college capuses
Violence Goes to College provides a comprehensive approach to addressing this epidemic today. The book begins with a discussion of the forms of violence seen on campuses and offers prevention and solution strategies for law enforcement professionals, faculty, staff, parents, and students. Catalysts such as alcohol or peer acceptance are presented as they apply to committed acts of violence such as sexual assault, homicide, hate crimes, rioting, arson, and bombing. Dr. Nicoletti also discusses the physical and emotional consequences of hazing on campus, including the realms of athletics, Greek life, and military training. Part I focuses on understanding the basics of violence, identifying the cast of characters: targets, perpetrators, protectors, and by-standers. Part II delves into prevention strategies for the college community and includes looking for warning signs of impending violent acts, how to build barriers to discourage a potential offender from acting out, and safety strategies for law enforcement personnel. Part III offers case examples of the myriad forms violence takes on campus with discussions about rape, rioting, stalking, hate crimes (including race-, ethnicity-, sexual orientation-, and gender-based motives), hazing, homicide, and nonsexual assault. Each chapter offers recommendations for prevention and follow-up strategies. Violence Goes to College gives tactics for dealing with the aftermath of a violent act including dealing with the media, counseling for victims families and survivors, and basic coping strategies for professionals who work in this field.
