When individuals engage in acts of violence, they rarely do so within a void. Complex factors accumulate and interact with one another up to and in the moment to create the risk of harm. As such, preventing violence requires developing insights about the individual, relationship, community, and social components of violence and implementing violence prevention strategies at each level for a comprehensive approach. Acting within and across multiple levels is needed to sustain prevention efforts over time and achieve a population-level effect. "On All Levels: Addressing Community Violence" is a community event to describe the social-ecological framework for violence prevention and provide knowledge and evidence-based practice about what can be effective at each level.
Presented by the Elk Place Health Spot of the Tulane University School of Social Work and Violence Prevention Institute of the Tulane University School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine, this three-hour continuing education session will include presentations from academic and community experts along with a panel discussion of prevention approaches.
