Integrating Sexual Violence Prevention into Existing Services
Preventing sexual violence from happening in the first place requires broad-based public health strategies focused on the community and environmental factors to decrease the risk for perpetration. Sexual violence is a serious public health and health equity issue that has lasting harmful impacts on individuals, families, and communities. Recent research from the CDC National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey confirms that sexual violence both impacts a staggering number of people and has short and long-term consequences that significantly impact health. During this workshop, we will share practical strategies for identifying and modifying community and environmental factors that impact sexual violence. We will discuss strategies to integrate sexual violence prevention into existing programs and services.
