Violence is a serious public health problem that is preventable. Ongoing research continues to improve our understanding of violence. Every year, we learn more about effective prevention programs that can help professionals and communities proactively prevent violence. But there is still more work to be done. This is where you can help.

Preventing violence begins by understanding the basics. The training and resources you will find on VetoViolence focus on primary prevention, that is, stopping violence before it starts.

Learn more about these prevention basics from our Principles of Prevention training.
