Primary Prevention seeks to reduce the overall likelihood that anyone will become a perpetrator or victim of violence by creating conditions that make violence less likely to occur.
Any Action, Inaction, or structural arrangement (Including Power and Control) that results in physical, psychological, and social harm to one or more persons.
We often don't realize how our "harmless" jokes contributes to a culture of violence. Primary Prevention addresses the root causes of violence by addressing the bottom piece of the pyramid seen here.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention publication, “Connecting the Dots: An Overview of the Linkages Among Multiple Forms of Violence” helps us understand how multiple forms of violence are connected through shared risk and protective factors. It also helps us understand the need for collaborating at the community level. Violence cannot be prevented by a single agency, organization, or group. It takes community collaboration and working together to prevent violence and achieve collective libration
At Carter Prevents, we believe violence is not inherent in our society but learned through acts of hatred that leads to violence. By focusing on attitudes and beliefs that are at the foundation for violence, we believe, collective liberation begins with being aware of our societal norms that impact violence, and actively making efforts to change those norms to move to social change.
