This web conference serves as a foundation and is recommended for new prevention practitioners. It is a repeat of sessions that have been done in previous years.
Interested in preventing sexual and domestic violence in your community? This introductory web conference will provide an overview to the 2017 PreventConnect web conference series and take us back to basics to review the fundamentals of a public health approach to preventing sexual and domestic violence. We will introduce a framework from Prevention Institute to help identify underlying contributors of sexual and domestic violence. Guests will then highlight innovative practices that address these factors and discuss how to use the Spectrum of Prevention to create comprehensive prevention strategies.
