Stopping Violence Before It Starts: Strategies for SV/IPV Prevention

We examine the risk factors that can lead to sexual violence and/or intimate partner violence.   Finally, we discuss strategies that can be used to create safe and protective relationships and communities to stop the violence before it starts.
