This panel focuses on the factors that are related to violence prevention and the health and mental health impact of violence. The presentations include factors related to the prevention of youth violence, community prevention of sexual abuse and exploitation, an environmental scan of the impact of adverse childhood events, and the relationship of lifetime trauma on outcomes such as food insecurity. This panel is an analysis of the factors most relevant to violence prevention and provides guidance in the development of an agenda to prevent violence in children and families. The critical nature of this agenda is underscored by the analysis of the severity of outcomes related to violent events and trauma.
Session Objectives: 1. Understand the impact of childhood adverse events on health and mental health outcomes. 2. Describe a method for designing community programs to prevent child sexual abuse. 3. Understand how lifetime trauma relates to food insecurity in the United States.
