Over the past several years, our partners at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have released a series of technical packages addressing various violence types. These packages offer strategies for preventing sexual violence, intimate partner violence, youth violence, suicide, and child abuse and neglect based on the best available evidence.
NSVRC staff has utilized the sexual violence technical package, STOP SV, in our training and technical assistance work with practitioners who are working to address and prevent sexual violence in their communities and have found it to be a valuable resource. That’s why we’re excited about the CDC’s latest resource, Violence Prevention in Practice: Guidance to Support Implementation of CDC’s Technical Packages to Prevent Violence. This tool was created to assist communities in their efforts to plan, implement, and evaluate prevention strategies.
In this guidance resource, you’ll find:
- tip sheets
- stories from the field
- planning tools
- guidance on how to engage community stakeholders
- guidance on how to adapt programs and policies so they are tailored to the communities in which they are being implemented
- and guidance on evaluating those prevention strategies.
We hope that you’ll take time to check out these technical packages and take a deeper dive with the implementation guidance tool.
