This research brief was developed but the CDC’s Division of Violence Prevention in collaboration with the Prevention Institute. As the title suggests, it makes connections between various forms of violence and provides support for strategic and innovative thinking that also considers culture and context in a community.

The brief goes over the impact of violence on children’s development, the intersecting causes of violence and the factors that increase risk and the factors that can protect people and communities and help us better prevent violence in all its forms.

Emerging evidence demonstrates the increased effectiveness of strategies in communities that are creating organizational linkages that can address and seek to prevent multiple forms of violence at one time.

 

With an entire page of resources and links for a deeper look into the available research, this publication also includes a chart that identifies studies that make the link between one or more forms of violence perpetration along with risk and protective factors across the social ecology.

This overview is an excellent resource that can be used to help draw the connections between multiple forms of violence and promote the importance community connections and sharing of resources to address them.
