Date: January 18, 2007
To: Graduate Students
From: Peter Ralston, Crick Social Development Lab Coordinator
Re: Interview help wanted

The Crick Social Development Lab is looking for up to 20 individuals to work during the spring semester on our study of relational and physical aggression in early childhood and kindergarten. We need to interview approximately 150 kindergarten age children at their homes throughout the metro area. Our primary interview assessment is the WPPSI – III (Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence - III), although there are several smaller questionnaires bundled into the interview. Having experience with the WIPPSI is a definite plus but not a requirement.

We anticipate most interviews will be on weeknights or weekends and you will choose which ones fit into your schedule and availability.

As an interviewer you will be paid $15.50 an hour. Unfortunately, this position does not carry any benefits but it is a great way to earn some extra cash. There are certain restrictions on the number of hours you can work that depend on your other appointments here at the U.

If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity please do not hesitate to contact me either via email at ralst003@umn.edu or phone at 612-625-6874.

Thank you.

Time: Mondays, 3:35 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. (1st class - January 22nd)

Background: Injuries from all sources are the leading cause of death for persons under the age of 45 years; 38% of the deaths from injury are the result of violence! Types of violence include interpersonal violence such as homicide, assaults, child abuse, intimate partner violence, elder abuse, and self-directed violence, such as suicides and suicide attempts. On an average day in America, 53 persons die from homicide, and a minimum of 18,000 persons survive interpersonal assaults, 84 persons complete suicide, and as many as 3,000 persons attempt suicide.

Costs of this violence to society are enormous. These costs include emergency department visits, inpatient hospital stays, outpatient (including treatment by physicians, chiropractors, psychologists, etc.), lost work days and workers’ compensation costs, years of potential life lost, legal costs, and other costs to the individual, including pain and suffering, disability, and decreased quality of life.

Course Description:Analyses and critique of major theories and epidemiologic research pertinent to violence, including characteristics of violence and relevant risk factors, reporting and treatment protocols, and current/potential intervention efforts and prevention initiatives; emphasis on interdisciplinary contributions to violence prevention and control. For students with interests in violence prevention and control from various disciplines including public health, nursing, law, medicine, social work, law enforcement, education, and psychology, etc., this course provides a foundation essential to the field.

Objectives: Upon successful completion of this course (PubH 6-123), the student will be able to:
* identify the magnitude of the problem to the degree that it is known, based on peer-reviewed literature and other resources.
* identify and discuss perspectives on the identification and characteristics of violence and relevant risk factors.
* analyze theory and research pertinent to violence.
* describe and critique procedures used in the reporting and treatment of various types of violence.
* identify potential intervention efforts and community initiatives pertinent to violence prevention and control.
* discuss the contributions of various disciplines such as nursing, public health, medicine, law enforcement, education, and social work etc. to violence prevention and control.
