Violence Type Information

Connecting the Dots

Different types of violence are connected and often share the same root causes. They can take place under one roof, in the same community or neighborhood, at the same time or at different stages of life.

Social Norms Thumbail

Social norms refer to values, beliefs, attitudes, and/or behaviors shared by a group of people. They are often based on what people believe to be normal, typical, or appropriate. Social norms can function as unspoken rules or guidelines for how people behave, and for how people are expected to behave.
