Connecting the Dots: Understanding and Addressing the Links

between Multiple Forms of Violence


Held Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Supported by Safe States Alliance, and the CDC NCIPC


“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... It’s all connected.” -Deborah Prothrow-Stith, MD, Adjunct Professor, Harvard School of Public Health


Different types of violence are connected and often share the same root causes. They can also all take place under one roof, in the same community or neighborhood, at the same time, or at different stages of life. Understanding the overlapping causes of violence and the things that can protect people and communities is important, and can help us better address violence in all its forms.


“Connecting the Dots: An Overview of the Links between Multiple Forms of Violence” is a new resource co-developed by CDC’s Division of Violence Prevention and Prevention Institute. This webinar highlights key content from this resource including the latest research on the connections between different forms of violence and how these connections affect communities. Lisa Millet and Adrienne Greene from Oregon’s Division of Public Health will also join us to describe how they have worked strategically and creatively to prevent multiple types of violence from occurring in the first place. During this webinar, participants will learn:

  • What the latest research says about shared risk and protective factors across different forms of violence
  • How experiencing one form of violence affects people’s risk for experiencing other forms of violence
  • How to consider peoples’ risk and protection from multiple forms of violence within the context of their communities
  • Examples of ways state health departments can address multiple forms of violence through shared risk and protective factors

Presenters for the webinar: Lisa Millet, MS, and Adrienne Greene, MPA.
