Connecting the Dots: Understanding and Addressing the Links between Multiple Forms of Violence

Thursday, November 20, 2014

“Gang violence is connected to bullying is connected to school violence is connected to intimate partner violence is connected to child abuse is connected to elder abuse… It’s all connected.”

-Deborah Prothrow-Stith, MD, Adjunct Professor, Harvard School of Public Health

Connecting the DotsDifferent types of violence are connected and often share the same root causes. They can also all take place under one roof, in the same community or neighborhood, at the same time, or at different stages of life. Understanding the overlapping causes of violence and the things that can protect people and communities is important, and can help us better address violence in all its forms.

“Connecting the Dots: An Overview of the Links between Multiple Forms of Violence” is a new resource co-developed by CDC’s Division of Violence Prevention and Prevention Institute. This web conference highlights key content from this resource including the latest research on the connections between different forms of violence and how these connections affect communities. Taylor Code Maxie, a survivor of violence and hip hop artist, will perform and Tomei Kuehl from Colorado’s Department of Public Health and Environment will also join us to describe how Colorado has worked strategically and creatively to prevent multiple types of violence from occurring in the first place
