Understanding Research & BEst Practices

How using adult-focused and child-focused prevention programs together can better protect children.

Speaker: Stacy Pendarvis, The Monique Burr Foundation

Schools, organizations, and communities have tried awareness campaigns, prevention programs, and other efforts to protect children from abuse and victimization. However, many organizations are using isolated, outdated, or untested methods and programs

Workshop attendees will learn about the latest research on polyvictimization and child-focused prevention and how it informs prevention best practices. Attendees will then learn how a collaborative adult-focused and child-focused prevention initiative can better protect children, explore a successful case study in action, and learn how they can incorporate this 360┬░ of prevention into their own programs and services.
