Principles of Prevention (Web-based)

Course Number: WB1279

The "Principles of Prevention (POP)" accredited online training will teach CDCs Division of Violence Prevention Grantees and Partners about the fundamental building blocks of effective violence prevention including concepts of primary prevention, the social ecological model and the public health approach. Once these concepts are studied, learners will complete a series of exercises during which they will review several scenarios - violence prevention programs, for example - and determine whether each program impacts before (primary prevention) or after violence occurs and then identify which level(s) of the social-ecological model each targets. These scenarios are presented, using illustrations from all the five types of violence on which CDC focuses, child maltreatment, intimate partner violence, sexual violence, suicide, and youth violence. The knowledge imparted from the course will guide grantees and partners to effective strategizing, designing, developing and implementing programs and research that focus on primary prevention and which impact on multiple levels of the social ecological model, using an appropriate public health approach. The online training lasts approximately 75 minutes and relies on media (video, voice-over, special effects and digital technology) to present real persons (Subject Matter Experts, or SMEs), to convey content in support of the learning objectives.
