Course Description:
This course is based upon material published by the World Health Organization and is available as an open access article.
 
ABSTRACT – Harmful and hazardous alcohol use are risk factors both for being victimized and perpetrating youth violence. Youth violence takes many forms including bullying, gang violence, sexual aggression, and assaults occurring in streets, bars and nightclubs. The victims and perpetrators alike are young people, and the consequences of youth violence can be devastating. Across the world an average of 565 young people aged 10 to 29 die every day through interpersonal violence, with males at greater risk, and for each death there are an estimated 20 to 40 youth that require hospital treatment for a violence-related injury. The impact of youth violence reaches all sectors of society, placing huge strains on public services and damaging communities. Reducing harmful alcohol use and violence among young people should thus be considered a priority for policy makers and practitioners across a broad range of agencies, with public health professionals having a key role in leading partnerships and prevention. This [course] summarizes the role of alcohol in youth violence, the magnitude of the problem, risk factors for involvement in alcohol-related youth violence, prevention measures and the role of public health. 
 
This course on youth violence and alcohol is designed for substance abuse counselors, social workers, psychologists, nurses, and professional counselors who do clinical work. This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their understanding of the relationship between alcohol use and violence in adolescents. The course material includes a description of the magnitude of alcohol related youth violence on a global level. It may also be useful for licensed clinicians who require continuing education courses for license renewal.
