Linking Child Focused Approaches to Preventing Sexual and Domestic Violence

Thursday June 11, 2015
11am-12:30 pm Pacific Time
(2pm-3:30pm Eastern)
What can we learn from the latest research and innovative strategies honoring linkages between children’s exposure to child maltreatment, sexual abuse, community and domestic violence? How are these different forms of violence connected? What would it take to prevent multiple forms of violence in one effort? This web conference offers an opportunity to creatively think through the links between multiple forms of violence experienced by children. Together we’ll explore implications for practice including efforts focused on trauma and equity. Experts will share examples from the field and discuss challenges to an integrated approach as well as tools and resources that can be used to guide integrated efforts.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this web conference, participants will be able to:

  • Identify successful prevention strategies that link multiple forms of violence
