  Abstract:  This study can be used as a flexible guide to determine possibilities for intervention in prevention school violence in specific contexts. Before any intervention it is necessary to define the school and community s strengths, weaknesses and target problems related to violence prevention. This implies an assessment of existing resources to invest in prevention programming (human and financial) and of the willingness of education staff to invest time, human and financial resources in the design of violence prevention programmes. Any prevention program should be evaluated upon the following criteria: a) using of an experimental design, evaluation of the design and adequate analytical procedures; b) empirical validation of the effects; c) implementation procedures; d) multiplication of the results by programs application in different places; e) persistence of the effects. Need assessment, also implies an analyze of the profile of violence in the local environment. Accurate information on the level and type of violence seen at the local level will help ensure that efforts focus on the real needs, rather than on perceived ones. In addition, collection of data on the profile of violence before beginning the intervention will provide planners a baseline that can be later compared with post-test intervention violence data, to evaluate the changes brought by the programme and his efficiency.
