What is Prevention?
Primary prevention, or stopping violence before it starts, is a simple enough concept on the surface, but to be able to successfully implement prevention strategies in your community, it is helpful to understand the concepts that drive prevention. ANDVSA has many resources and training materials focused on primary prevention.
Preventing Violence and Promoting Respect in Alaska
We learn respect from many places and people in our lives, therefore it takes many people working together to model, teach, and create communities that promote respect in relationships. By building communities of respect together we can stop violence before it ever starts.
