The Task Force on Community Preventive Services reviewed published scientific evidence on the effectiveness of universal school-based programs to reduce or prevent violent behavior. This evidence proves that these programs decrease rates of violence and aggressive behavior among school-aged children. All grade levels demonstrated program effects, and an independent meta-analysis confirmed and supplemented these findings. Consequently, the Task Force recommends using universal school-based programs to prevent or reduce violent behavior.
