New and Improved VetoViolence Website

Wednesday, 19 November 2014

The new and improved VetoViolence website provides interactive and engaging evidence- and practice-based tools, trainings, and resources to help you stop violence—before it happens in your community.

What's new?

The website’s newest features continue to provide and assist violence prevention practitioners in finding useful, free, online tools, trainings, and resources. Check out our new, fresh, bolder design and new features, such as:

  • EvaluACTION a tool that will help you put evaluation to work. Through the tool you will learn the dos and don’ts of evaluation, debunk evaluation myths, and create, save, download, and edit your logic model and evaluation plan.
  • Dating Matters Capacity Assessment and Planning Tool is an online resource that will help you assess and monitor your capacity for implementing a comprehensive teen dating violence initiative. The tool will help you gather information, generate reports, and work with partners to determine capacity priorities and develop action plans.
  • Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Snapshot is a resource that will help you understand the landmark Kaiser ACE Study. The resource will help you answer questions such as what exactly do we know about ACEs and what does that information mean for public health practitioners? More importantly, you will learn how can we use what we know about ACEs to minimize their negative effects and ideally, prevent them from occurring in the first place.

What’s Still Available?

Along with the new features, VetoViolence will continue to offer a wide variety of additional resources to support you:

  • Dating Matters Training is an online course available in which you can learn how to improve the health of teens and prevent dating violence.
  • Principles of Prevention is a training in which you learn how to apply key concepts of primary prevention, the public health approach, and the social-ecological model to your violence prevention work.
  • STRYVE Online Resources is where you will find information, tools, and other resources that explain how to bring together a team and plan prevention strategies that can work to prevent youth violence in your community.
  • Success Stories is a tool you can use to create, save, download, and edit your stories of successful violence prevention efforts. Once you create and download your success story, you can showcase your positive results with partners.
  • Understanding Evidence is where you can learn the value of making evidence-informed decisions around violence prevention. You will discover the three types of evidence involved in decision-making, look at different data collection methods, and more.
