Training Professionals in Prevention of Sexual & Intimate Partner Violence

The CDC has published a new guide, Training Professionals in the Primary Prevention of Sexual and Intimate Partner Violence: a Planning Guide (PDF). The guide includes a section on training healthcare providers, and it’s full of useful tools and resources.

From the site:

This Guide describes how to develop, implement, and evaluate a process for training professionals to engage in sexual violence and intimate partner violence prevention. The Guide is designed to help practitioners tailor individual trainings to different groups of professionals. It provides definitions of sexual violence and intimate partner violence and includes real-life examples to illustrate theory put into practice. In addition to step-by-step guidance on all the tasks necessary for planning a training, the Guide includes tip sheets, worksheets, checklists, and an extensive resource list.
