Blueprint to Prevent Interpersonal Violence in Contra Costa County
With support from the Contra Costa Alliance to End Abuse (the Alliance), Prevention Institute is providing consultation services to the Alliance and its multisector Core Project Team as it develops a countywide blueprint to reduce interpersonal violence. Interpersonal violence includes child abuse, elder abuse, domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. The planning process and resulting blueprint will promote a greater shared vision for prevention of interpersonal violence and will increase capacity and readiness for collaborative action and systems change.
The capacity building and planning process is designed to achieve the following objectives:
- Strengthen understanding and capacity for primary prevention among Alliance partners;
- Develop a Blueprint that emphasizes prevention of multiple forms of violence through addressing shared risk and protective factors;
- Uplift practices with the greatest potential to prevent interpersonal violence across the lifespan drawing from the best available evidence; and
- Engage partners in a transparent process that engenders and expands multisector collaboration, joint strategies, and outcomes.
