Making the Connection: Intimate Partner Violence and Public Health

How can we engage public health leaders to respond to family violence? Futures Without Violence, formerly Family Violence Prevention Fund announces an improved evidence-based tool, Making the Connection: Intimate Partner Violence and Public Health. This PowerPoint training and education tool distills the most recent data and promising practices on the health impact of violence on maternal child health, mental health, injury prevention, children and adolescents, and more. Over 300 slides present compelling data, national resources, and program and policy recommendations along with photos and graphics to engage diverse audiences.  The tool is divided into downloadable chapters and includes a compendium listing the full citations for each chapter.  Presenters may pick and choose which slides to include in trainings, and reference “speaker’s notes” to strengthen presentations.  This updated pre-packaged tool continues to be invaluable to leaders in the fields of health and violence to help carry out effective training and education for staff.
