About the Violence Prevention Office

Who We Are

This area of Public Interest is responsible for disseminating research-based knowledge and information on violence and injury prevention. It is the coordination point for the ACT Parents Raising Safe Kids Program. We also work to integrate different approaches on violence in the family.

What We Do

We train and provide technical assistance and materials to professionals and community-based organizations to implement the ACT Parents Raising Safe Kids Program in English and in Spanish.  In addition, we develop publications and provide information and resources to professionals, policy makers, and the general public on violence prevention issues.
