Center for the Prevention of Youth Violence

Seminars, Presentations and Workshops

The Center both sponsors seminars and provides information about non-Center affiliated seminars and presentations throughout the year on topical issues related to youth violence prevention. These are opportunities for researchers, students, policymakers, community members and others to come together to share research findings, explore interventions intended to reduce youth violence, improve outcomes for youth and discuss implications and future directions for the community and state.

This list is updated regularly, so please check back with us to find out about upcoming seminars, presentations and workshops as information becomes available.

SWIS Facilitator Training
September 22 - 24, 2009
The School-wide Information System (
SWIS) is a web-based information system used to improve the behavior support in elementary, middle and high schools. The purpose of SWIS is to provide school personnel with accurate, timely, and practical information for making decisions about discipline systems. School personnel collect ongoing information about discipline events in their school, and enter this information through protected, web-based software. SWIS provides summaries of this information for use in the design of effective behavior support for individual students, groups of students, or the whole student body. With accurate and timely information, school personnel can make decisions that transform schools into safe, orderly, and supportive environments. Go to http://pbismaryland.org for more information.
