An interdisciplinary team led by educators at Rutgers University is studying whether tailored success plans and specially designed after-school activities can prevent at-risk youngsters in Newark, N.J., from engaging in violent behavior… "With youth violence you can’t have Band-Aids," said Felesia Bowen, PhD, RN, APN-BC, assistant professor and director of the Center for Urban Youth and Families at the Rutgers School of Nursing, which received the grant. "The Band-Aids are not working. We are still having problems. We need to get down to the root causes."
