Viewing Resource: Connecting the Dots: An Overview of the Links Among Multiple Forms of Violence

Resource Overview

“The purpose of this brief is to share research on the connections between different forms of violence and describe how these connections affect communities. The information in Connecting the Dots, combined with your own practical experience, can help practitioners to think strategically and creatively about how you can:

1. Prevent all types of violence from occurring in the first place.
2. Coordinate and integrate responses to violence in a way that recognizes these connections and considers the individual in the context of their home environment, neighborhood, and larger community.”
