Creating a Community-Based, Prevention Approach for Children Exposed to Violence
Though they are sometimes siloed, effective prevention strategies can be integrated for children exposed to multiple forms of violence—sexual abuse, community and domestic violence, and child maltreatment. Please join Prevention Institute and special guests for a June 11th PreventConnect web conference about creating a community-based, prevention approach to violence that keeps children’s well-being at the forefront.
Thursday, June 11, 2015
11:00 am-12:30 pm PT / 2:00 pm-3:30 pm ET
This webinar will draw on the latest research and innovative strategies about connections between different forms of violence against children, and discuss how to prevent this violence in one effort. We’ll explore implications for practice, including efforts focused on trauma and equity. We’ll also discuss challenges to an integrated approach; the tools and resources that can be used to guide integrated efforts; and the benefits and challenges of partnering with agencies that focus on different forms of violence.
