Prevention Assessment Year 1 Report: National Strengths and Needs Assessment

General Material

In 2009, the NSVRC contracted with Dr. Stephanie Townsend to assist in developing a plan to measure the primary prevention capacity of the sexual violence prevention field.  This is a 3 year process being conducted in collaboration with the CDC and CALCASA/Prevention Connection.  This report outlines findings from the first year of the assessment. This assessment revealed information on the level of endorsement for primary prevention activities, consistency in definitions, and some needs and barriers related to incorporating a primary prevention focus in programming.
