SafER Teens

As part of the 30-minute intervention, participants are guided to explore their goals and values, how risky behaviors could affect their goals, and positive ways to resolve conflict. Afterwards, participants receive booster text messages for two months to reinforce intervention content. Previous studies led by our team with teens recruited from the emergency department have found that patients who receive the SafER Teens program are less likely to report involvement in violence and violence-related consequences at follow-up.
