    • Abstract:
      The impact evaluation of the Children's Antivictimization Education Project (CAVE) showed that education programs conducted in English and Spanish enhance young children's potential for avoiding victimization. Children who experienced English K-3 and 4-6 programs showed significant gains in knowledge about victimization and strategies for staying safe. The Spanish K-3 program had a significant positive impact for first graders. Sample data for the Spanish 4-6 program and the English programs for grades 7-9 and 10-12 did not conclusively demonstrate program effects. While children's reports of abuse apparently increased after the presentations, data on the teachers' and presenters' knowledge about general child victimization and prevention issues did not indicate a positive effect. In addition to the impact evaluation of the Texas Department of Human Services' CAVE project, this final report provides (1) an introduction relating project background, goal, and objectives; (2) a description of key project features, including coordination, the We Help Ourselves (WHO) curriculum model, sites, and evaluation; (3) a process description; and (4) conclusions concerning the fulfillment of project objectives, continuation of the WHO program, and evaluation results. Eleven items of related materials are appended, such as steering committee minutes, an implementation report, and data collection instruments. (RH)
