Preventing Early Adversity through Policies, Norms, and Programs (Webinar)

Dr. Merrick will provide an overview of the 2016 technical package from the Division of Violence Prevention in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. A technical package is a collection of strategies that represent the best available evidence to prevent or reduce public health problems like violence. They can help improve the health and well-being of communities. A technical package has three parts.

  1. The strategy lays out the direction or actions to achieve the goal of preventing violence.
  2. The approach includes the specific ways to advance the strategy. This can be accomplished through programs, policies, and practices.
  3. The evidence for each of the approaches in preventing violence or its associated risk factors is included as the third component.
