Prevention: Identifying Our Role in Stopping Violence Before it Begins
December 1, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pmFree
This four hour training will focus on the efforts to create and maintain social change through primary prevention with the ultimate goal of stopping violence before it begins. Prevention requires understanding the factors that influence violence, and this training will address how we can work to change social norms, thoughts, attitudes and policies that have created an environment where violence is accepted. We will utilize the socio ecological model as our framework and provide participants with skills and models necessary to support this cultural change and engage communities in the prevention of violence.
