CDC: Discover Connections Between Types of Violence
New Tool Enables Exploration of Risk and Protective Factors
You’re invited to use Connecting the Dots Selector, a new tool from CDC that makes it easier to see links between different types of violence.
A clear understanding of these connections can help you plan strategies to prevent multiple forms of violence at once.
This tool enables you to connect the overlapping causes and what can protect people at individual, relationship, community, and societal levels.
How Do I Use It?
- Select an option to see how results interrelate, including:
- Social-Ecological Model (SEM): Select the Individual, Relationship, Community, or Society level of the SEM to see the risk and protective factors at that level and the violence types associated with each.
- Risk and Protective Factors: Within any level of the SEM, click on a risk or protective factor to see the violence types associated with it.
- Violence Types: Click on any violence type to explore the risk and protective factors associated with it at each level of the SEM.
- Check out the connections and how their insights can help stop violence before it starts.
