Breaking the Cycle of Violence

at the University of Massachusetts Boston

Prevention/Intervention Strategies

Charge of this group is to identify what agencies and individuals are

  1. Currently working on initiatives to address violence in the community
     
  2. How can they leverage their resources through social networking & system wide communication
     
  3. Determine how to identify the gaps and how to fill the gaps

By staying abreast of the information from the roundtables and the research group the strategies group will continue to tweak existing and craft new approaches to programs and policy. The Strategies group will enlist the service of the Education group for training material and ongoing staff training.
