NSVRC Releases New Prevention Report

NSVRC Releases New Prevention Report

The NSVRC is pleased to announce the release of the Prevention Assessment Year 2 Report: Innovations in Prevention, prepared for the NSVRC by Stephanie M. Townsend, PhD. Special thanks to PreventConnect for providing additional support to augment the assessment and include an examination of how innovations diffuse.

This second phase of the NSVRC's Prevention Assessment project focused on interviews with innovative prevention programs and a diffusion survey to document how innovations have spread throughout the sexual violence prevention field. The emphasis of this assessment was on how programs are thinking about primary prevention and the processes that allowed innovation to develop. This report contains findings from that assessment.

View podcasts conducted by PreventConnect with some of the programs interviewed for the report.
