3026.0 Translating Research for Community Contexts

Monday, November 8, 2010: 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
Moving interventions developed either through research or involvement with a specific community to the larger family violence discussion can, at times, be challenging. This challenge recognizes that family violence prevention in communities is not only vulnerable to the contextual issues present but the structural forces at play and the dynamics of the intervention. This sessions brings to the fore the issues that are present as researchers and community participants alike work collaboratively to address and reduce the incidence and prevalence of family violence for all.
Session Objectives: 1. Describe strategies that have had some effectiveness in bridging the gap between practice and research in the areas of family violence prevention or intervention. 2. Identify the key components of these interventions that are built on public health values and theory.
