Interpersonal violence refers broadly to any actions between persons (i.e., interpersonal) that are hurtful or harmful (i.e., violence). Various forms of interpersonal violence (e.g., physical, emotional, sexual abuse; dating violence; bullying) are common among school-aged youth, and students may be both perpetrators and victims of interpersonal violence. The effects of interpersonal violence can impact various domains of functioning throughout one’s life, physically (e.g., increased risk of somatic symptoms) and emotionally (e.g., increased risk of depression, delinquent behavior). Cultural considerations of these effects warrant exploration. Further, schools represent a critical setting to monitor and address the impacts of interpersonal violence. The authors present both systems-level (e.g., Developmental Designs, Restorative Practices, Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) and student-level approaches to support students. They also provide a list of external resources and discussion questions.
