Module 2 of the ANDVSA Statewide Prevention Orientation reviews Prevention 101 concepts including the 3 levels of prevention with a spotlight on primary prevention and why primary prevention is crucial for ending violence. This material was developed by a VISTA Americorps Leader to assist with training and building the prevention capacity of VISTA workers placed in domestic violence/sexual assault programs throughout Alaska.

Utilizing prevention science and a public health approach, this series offers an example of prevention training and capacity building tools developed for a specific sector doing gender based violence prevention work. May be easily adapted by others.

This is a useful tool to train community based volunteers, staff and community partners in primary prevention concepts. Consider state relevance. All rights are reserved by ANDVSA.
