The Evidence for Violence Prevention Across the Lifespan and Around the World: Workshop Summary.

Show details


The Forum on Global Violence Prevention was established to develop multisectoral collaboration among stakeholders. Violence prevention is a crossdisciplinary field that could benefit from increased dialogue among researchers, policy makers, funders, and practitioners. As awareness of the insidious and pervasive nature of violence grows, so too does the imperative to mitigate and prevent it. The Forum seeks to illuminate and explore evidence-based approaches to the prevention of violence.

A number of individuals contributed to the development of this workshop and report. These include a number of staff members from the Institute of Medicine and the National Academies: Pamela Bertelson, Daniel Bethea, Karen Campion, Leigh Carroll, Marton Cavani, Angela Christian, Kristen Danforth, Colin Fink, Chelsea Frakes, Meg Ginivan, Robin Guyse, Wendy Keenan, Patrick Kelley, Suzanne Landi, Eileen Milner, Jose Portillo, Patsy Powell, and Julie Wiltshire. The Forum staff, including Deepali Patel, Megan Perez, and Rachel Taylor, put forth considerable effort to ensure this workshop's success.

The planning committee contributed hours of service to develop and execute the agenda, with the support of the Forum staff. Reviewers also provided thoughtful remarks in reading the draft manuscript. Finally, these efforts would not be possible without the work of the Forum membership itself, an esteemed body of individuals dedicated to the concept that violence is preventable.

The overall successful functioning of the Forum and its activities depends on the generosity of its sponsors. Financial support for the Forum on Global Violence Prevention is provided by Anheuser-Busch InBev; the Avon Foundation for Women; BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company); Catholic Health Initiatives; the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; the Department of Health and Human Services: Administration on Aging, Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Office on Women's Health; the Department of Justice: National Institute of Justice; Eli Lilly and Company; the F.
