Learn how mobile technology can be leveraged for young people in high school and college. This workshop describes the development and pilot of two prevention and response apps developed by researchers and practitioners at the UNH Prevention Innovations Research Center. Both apps were interactively developed with target audience members and other stakeholders. Unlike other college and student safety apps, uSafeUS® and uSafeHS TM provide primary prevention that facilitates users’ safe exit from potentially dangerous situations, secondary prevention that enables users to secure help when violence occurs, and tertiary prevention that enables users to obtain resources to help themselves or a friend in the aftermath of violence. The apps also shift the paradigm of how technology and violence prevention education can be combined to improve student and school safety and serve the needs of both students and school leaders.
