CDC Technical Packages for Violence Prevention

Posted by on September 14th, 2017 Posted in: Children and Teens, General

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has developed technical packages to help states and communities take advantage of the best available evidence to prevent violence. 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. Each package is intended as a resource to guide and inform prevention decision-making in communities and states. CDC plans to develop technical packages to highlight the best available evidence in preventing sexual violence, child abuse and neglect, youth violence, intimate partner violence, and suicide. The strategies and approaches in the technical package represent different levels of the social ecology with efforts intended to impact individual behaviors as well as the relationship, family, school, community, and societal factors that influence risk and protective factors for violence. They are intended to work together and to be used in combination in a multi-level, multi-sector effort to prevent violence.

Technical packages available:

  • Preventing Intimate Partner Violence Across the Lifespan: A Technical Package of Programs, Policies, and Practices
  • Preventing Suicide: A Technical Package of Policy, Programs, and Practices
  • A Comprehensive Technical Package for the Prevention of Youth Violence and Associated Risk Behaviors
  • STOP SV:  A Technical Package to Prevent Sexual Violence
  • Preventing Child Abuse & Neglect: A Technical Package for Policy, Norm, and Programmatic Activities

Access the technical packages and learn more about them.
