Identify and briefly describe an organization (e.g., school, workplace) in which violence might be a chronic issue in that country or community.

Researchers who investigate the causes of specific health problems look at a wide range of influences on several different levels. For instance, if researchers were investigating obesity at the individual level, they could examine eating habits and frequency of sedentary activities like TV watching. If the health problems also are population wide, as obesity is, it is important from a public health standpoint to focus on community-level factors such as availability of healthy foods and recreational facilities.

Communities and organizations have personalities and can resist change in a manner similar to how individuals can become set in their ways. Have you ever been part of a group where the social norms created pressure to behave a certain way? One possible strategy for changing behaviors is to aIDress a community or organization rather than individuals. For this you would use theories geared to groups rather than to individuals.

For this Discussion, consider community level factors that might contribute to injury-related public health problem that is present in a country or a community with these thoughts in mind:

Post 4-5 pages of a description of the injury-related public health problem you selected. Include incidence rates for this problem in the country or community you selected and a description of populations at risk for it. Then, explain which community-level factors might influence increased risk for injury in its population. Identify and briefly describe an organization (e.g., school, workplace) in which violence might be a chronic issue in that country or community

Consider the role of change agents (i.e., a person or group that indirectly or directly facilitates change) as you apply the Stage Theory of Organizational Change to the topic of violenc
