Guidelines for the Primary Prevention of Sexual Violence and Intimate Partner Violence

Media Type: 
Prevention Strategy Type: 

The guidelines serve as a technical assistance tool in developing primary prevention initiatives in communities based on a sound public health framework. The document and support materials contained herein are based on a combination of research (Nation, et al, 2003, for example) and experience from people who do gender based violence primary prevention work on a daily basis.

Goal: To provide consistent guidance to local communities in Virginia who are developing primary prevention strategies.

This document combines the best available research with practice-based evidence and provides a framework to build comprehensive prevention strategies in our field.

Impact: Before launching the Guidelines, selected prevention practitioners from across the nation working to end gender based violence reviewed and provided feedback regarding the document. Anecdotally, many local and state organizations have found the document very helpful and useful in describing how to develop successful prevention strategies.
