Prevention-Intervention Group Survey (PIGS)

Development of Violence in Youth from Diverse Backgrounds

Project Overview

In an effort to uncover the roots of the development of youth violence, an interdisciplinary team of faculty and graduate students from the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Education & Human Development has developed the Prevention Intervention Group Survey. This research team has used this survey in a number of school districts to provide information about the development of youth violence in these systems and to yield data concerning the reliability and validity of this instrument. The survey is available in both Spanish and English and is designed to obtain information about violent behaviors, risk factors, resilience factors and a range of social and emotional outcomes in students.
