CEU Course Description

Gang violence has become a widespread problem in the United States. This CPE course, which was developed using the U.S. Department of Justice publication Gang Prevention: An Overview of Research and Programs, was designed to inform the participant about trends in gang activity, demographic characteristics of gang members, and risk factors for gang involvement.  Additionally, various strategies to prevent gang involvement are discussed. The CPE course would be appropriate for professionals in the education, mental health, or social work fields, or other community members who would be interested in finding out more information about gang activity and interventions.

CEU Course Objectives

1.  Summarize current research on gang activity, including the state of gang problems in the U.S. today.

2.  Evaluate the reasons that youth join gangs, the risk factors and attractions that increase gang involvement, and how gangs form.

3.  Identify ways in which community members can begin to assess their gang problems and provide necessary prevention and intervention activities.

4.  Describe various effective and promising programs that may help prevent youth delinquency and gang violence.
