Resources About Prevention Curricula
There are many different types of curricula and campaigns for dating and domestic violence prevention in schools and communities. Primary prevention curricula offer information and activities that can help change social norms and stop violence before it happens. Secondary and Tertiary curricula offer information and activities that address the effects of violence once it has occurred or attempts to stop violence from happening again.
Prevention curricula can be brought to communities for teens, youth, young adults, educators, school staff and parents. Several resources are designed to be used specifically in workplaces, faith communities, neighborhoods and sports settings, to name a few.
PCADV’s prevention team conducted thorough curriculum reviews that took into account evidence-based research and identifies guiding principles for effective programs. Curriculum and campaigns targeted toward youth in schools and non school-based settings and materials designed to engage men and boys were prioritized for review. Please see PCADV’s curriculum page for more information on prevention curricula, guiding principles as well as literature and program reviews.
