Program uses art to engage at-risk kids

."

Visual Voices is different than surveys or focus groups because it uses tools crayons, paint and markers that are familiar to children, and it can lead to in-depth discussions, encourage self-efficacy and help build trusting relationships between academic researchers and the communities they serve, added Dr. Yonas. It also can help experts prioritize public health interventions.

In Pittsburgh, for example, findings were shared with the local police department to develop potential intervention opportunities and to increase law enforcement's understanding of young peoples' perceptions of safety.

"The heart of Visual Voices is to ask and listen," said Jessica G. Burke, Ph.D., study co-author and assistant professor, Department of Behavioral and Community Health Sciences, Pitt's Graduate School of Public Health. "You need to first ask what it is people care about in order to develop public health interventions that are appropriate for specific communities."
