Newly-Enhanced Prevention & Education Areas

VAWnet has significantly enhanced the content, structure, and utility of the Prevention & Education information on our website. These special collections of selected materials on prevention theory, models, and approaches for raising awareness and increasing community engagement to end violence against women are now located within the Domestic Violence and Sexual Violence areas of VAWnet. The materials included provide a broad range of information and tools to support advocates' prevention and education efforts.

Access the enhanced areas at:


  • Prevention: This area features theories and practices that promote the prevention of domestic and sexual violence. Prevention approaches are designated as primary, secondary, and/or tertiary in nature, and "model" or "promising" programs, curricula, and initiatives are identified. Evaluation materials are provided to help guide evidence-based, cost-effective prevention efforts. Subsections include: Theory & Research, Practice, and Evaluation.
  • Education: This area includes strategies for raising awareness and
    increasing community engagement to end domestic and sexual violence.
    Specific campaigns and initiatives are identified, in addition to
    outreach strategies and materials for training individuals to
    identify, prevent, and respond to violence against women in various
    settings. Several kits and tools are provided. Subsections include:
    Raising Awareness & Increasing Engagement: Campaigns & Initiatives,
    Training, Outreach, and Kits & Tools.
  • DVAM/SAAM: This section provides access to the National Domestic
