This chapter addresses interpersonal youth violence prevention, more precisely initiatives which focus on how to prevent children from becoming violent. It commences with a brief outline of the various developmental pathways that lead toward aggressive conduct and then discusses framework for violence prevention, drawing on relevant international models and research. The final section we report on some lessons learned from a preliminary investigation of South African youth violence prevention and peace education (VPE) initiatives, that point the way towards the development of 'good practice' violence prevention programmes.
