dc.description.abstract This study aimed to investigate factors that protect violence-exposed male adolescents from partaking in violence. A total of 110 male adolescents (n=110) from Grades 11 and 12, were recruited by means of a self-selection sampling method, from two secondary schools located in a small township called Enseleni, in the north of KwaZulu-Natal, approximately 15 km from Richards Bay. The researcher used the Screen for Adolescent Violence Exposure (SAVE) to assess violence-exposure in participants. Participants also completed a questionnaire which aimed to investigate factors that they felt were instrumental in preventing them from partaking in violence despite being exposed to it. A number of protective factors were identified by participants but all of them were found to be independent from participation in violence. There was no significant relationship found between any of the identified protective factors and participants’ decisions to either participate or not participate in violence. en_US
