A Public Health Approach Builds Resilience to Violence 

Interested in learning more about the public health approach to targeted violence prevention? Looking for a resource on this topic to share with partners and other interested stakeholders?

In partnership with the McCain Institute, the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) recently published an Explainer that serves as a brief, but comprehensive description of a public health approach to targeted violence prevention that aligns with CP3’s current strategy. The brief outlines a model for violence prevention that applies a public health, evidence-based approach, and the tiers of prevention individually.

This product, which was created for the U.S. Prevention Practitioners Network, may also serve as a helpful resource for those unfamiliar with this approach or new to this space. The McCain Institute and Strong City Network, which is part of ISD, are both FY2023 TVTP grantees.
