Poynton and Dimmitt present a brief overview and analysis of the article, Effectiveness of a violence prevention curriculum among children in elementary school: A randomized controlled trial, originally published in Journal of the American Medical Association. The authors present a summary of the key components of the article including the introduction, method and results of the study. They offer an additional analysis of implications for future practice, including a discussion of the difference in findings between the trained observers who found significant effects from the intervention, and the parents/teachers, who did not report significant effects.
