Violence in many forms—including community violence, intimate partner violence, and child maltreatment—is a leading cause of injury, disability, and premature death. This session will highlight research on shared risk and protective factors among multiple forms of violence, drawing from “Connecting the Dots: An Overview of the Links Among Multiple Forms of Violence,” a 2014 report by Prevention Institute and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that informed the CDC Division of Violence Prevention’s current five-year strategic vision. Learn about how communities across the country are leveraging research to operationalize efficient and effective solutions to concurrently prevent many types of violence in the first place. Also, engage in a dialogue on how to better bridge research and practice to prevent violence in all of its forms.
