Place matters for sexual and domestic violence prevention. Protective physical/built environments can help achieve community-level results and significantly influence individual behavior. “Place factors” like a neighborhood looking and feeling inviting and safe or having parks and open space can enhance factors in the sociocultural environment (e.g. sense of community, strong social networks and neighbors helping each other). In this interactive web conference, we will continue to build on the THRIVE framework to explore the role sexual and domestic violence prevention practitioners can play in helping design spaces that promote safety. Guests will share why they are focused on place-based efforts for sexual and domestic violence prevention and what they are specifically doing in communities.
