ABSTRACT

Social-Ecological Model: A Framework for Violence Prevention   [open pdf - 115KB]

From the Document: "The ultimate goal of the work of violence prevention is to stop violence before it begins. CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] uses a four-level social-ecological model (SEM) to better understand and prevent violence. Violence is complicated and results from a combination of multiple influences on behavior. It is about how individuals relate to those around them and to their broader environment. The SEM allows us to address the factors that put people at risk for or protect them from experiencing or perpetrating violence (risk and protective factors) and the prevention strategies that can be used at each level to address these factors."
