Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)website on violence (http://www.cdc.gov/ViolencePrevention). Using information found on this site, and at leastfourother academic/professional sources, write a6 to 8-page paper (not including title and reference pages which would bring the total to 8 to 10 pages) discussing a type of violence that is generally NOT widely discussed, as well as discussing the types of interventions that can be implemented to try and prevent it. The type of violence you choose to discuss must be one that has not been given much of a national spotlight and has not been addressed by many different prevention programs nationwide. The paper must be double-spaced, and in APA-style format. Make sure to use APA-style headings and sub-headings to organize and differentiate the separate sections of the paper (points will be deducted from your final grade if you do not use headings, because this is part of proper APA format). Lastly, proofread the paper and make sure writing is clear and concise – using proper sentence and paragraph format.
TIP:While proofreading, read the paper out loud, using short pauses for commas and longer pauses for periods. This will help with easier detection of any awkward or run-on sentences.
