Planning, implementing, evaluating and sustaining community-based prevention: the DELTA Story, 2/28/2012, 3-4:30 PM

Blog post

Between planning prevention,implementing prevention, evaluating prevention, and sustaining prevention, where do you like to focus your efforts most? You may love to plan, or perhaps prefer to implement. But all four activities are vital to effective prevention.

The Partnership’sFebruary 2012 Prevention Peer Network Web Conference focused on planning, implementing, evaluating and sustaining community-based prevention. The web conference highlighted four unique community-based prevention projects that are supported by the Partnership through theCDC DELTA Project, and explored lessons-learned, tools and resources to support effective planning, evaluation, implementation and sustainability for comprehensive community-based intimate partner violence prevention projects.

Facilitators included:

  • Sharon Turner, Regional Director, STAND! For Families Free of Violence
  • Alison Tudor, Director, Mountain Crisis Services
  • Sarah Ou, Prevention Coordinator, Women’s Shelter Program of San Luis Obispo
  • Valerie Brew, Child Well Being Department Director, South Bay Community Services

Since 2003, with support from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, theCalifornia Partnership to End Domestic Violence and local California communities have participated in the Domestic Violence Prevention Enhancement and Leadership Through Alliances (DELTA) Project to enhance and lead intimate partner violence (IPV) prevention in California to greater effectiveness. Each local multi-component prevention project focuses on a different age group across the life span, including 3-5 year children who have witnessed domestic violence, elementary and middle school students, college students, and adults.

This topic was also presented as a workshop at the 2011 Statewide DV Conference and 73% of participants rated it “excellent.” 27% rated it “very good.”

Prevention Peer Network Web Conferences are an interactive opportunity for knowledge sharing and network building among domestic violence (DV) and teen dating violence (TDV) prevention advocates and educators across California. Web conferences use Power Point slides (viewed on your computer using an Internet connection), text chats, and a teleconference line to offer participants multiple ways to share and learn together. Prevention Peer Network Web Conferences are offered as a free benefit for members of the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence. Through web conferences and other activities, we are nurturing a vibrant and diverse prevention peer network in California.

Minutes from the web conference and a list of resources will be posted on the Prevention Peer Network Web Conference webpage.
