Connecting the Dots & Breaking the Silos: Understanding the Links Among Multiple Forms of Violence

Deborah Prothrow-Stith, MD, Harvard School of Public Health, has stated, “Gang violence is connected to bullying is connected to school violence is connected to intimate partner violence is connected to child abuse is connected to elder abuse is connected. It’s all connected.” But how? And what does that mean for communities experiencing these types of violence? Or for any of us in advocacy, criminal justice, healthcare, public health, education, social services, child welfare or adult protection, who are responding to the immediate or long-term aftermath of violence or planning for prevention?

During this webinar, we explore the linkages between multiple forms of violence, and identify opportunities to work across issues on joint action that can benefit all.
