Domestic violence is linked to many other forms of violence and other health outcomes through shared risk and protective factors. This 2-part webinar series from the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence outlines key research on risk and protective factors and explores ways that local programs can use this research to information DV prevention strategies.

Given the countless influences on violence, the tendency for multiple forms of violence to co-occur within individuals, families, and communities, and the limited resources available to address violence, focusing on these shared risk and protective factors can be a highly effective and engaging way to structure a violence prevention strategy.

In part 1 of this 2-part webinar series, NCCADV prevention staff provide an overview of the exciting research on shared risk and protective factors for violence and an introduction to the new online tool, Prevent Violence NC, built to support communities and organizations working to end violence throughout North Carolina.

Part 2 of the series features examples of innovative violence prevention strategies addressing shared risk and protective factors across North Carolina, with presentations by the organizations running them.
