Creating Insights . Making Schools Safer
Our staff of volunteer researchers combined behavioral research and data science in the same way the Center for Disease Control, the Social Security Administration, the FDA, the Institute of Health, and many corporations do. In our case, we identify school violence patterns, causes, and the behaviors triggering them. Our research staff translated biological, criminal, social, cultural, psychological, gender, and behavioral research datasets into new and actionable insights to better understand the complex world of school violence.
Four questions drive our research initiative:
1) Why do certain children or young adults become violent?
2) How do they learn to become violent?
3) What data tools provide valid insight into common behavioral patterns that violent children or young adults share?
4) How can these insights help shape community and clinical practices that reduce school violence?
Our interdisciplinary research teams compile, analyze and upload school violence information using epidemiological methods, network theory, psychological and sociological methods, criminology theories, semiotic analytic methods and communication/media analytic methods.
