Emerging Data on Preventing Gender-Based Violence Event

Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC and Southwest PA Says NO MORE present Making Research Relevant: Researchers & Practitioners Dialogue About Emerging Data on Gender-Based Violence.

The field of prevention is continuing to evolve. Practitioners are in the field every day, working to shift attitudes and behaviors to prevent the perpetration of abuse and to increase bystander intervention, but are often navigating by instinct and anecdotal feedback. In southwest PA, we are fortunate that Children’s Hospital of UPMC is conducting multiple research studies related to the prevention of sexual harassment, assault and relationship abuse. The CHP Adolescent Medicine research team will present preliminary, unpublished findings from ongoing studies and seek input from practitioners to make meaning of the data. This workshop is a unique opportunity for researchers and practitioners to come together and dialogue about what is working, what is not, and how these findings can shape ongoing prevention efforts.

This session is designed for professionals engaged in efforts to break cycles of violence and prevent adolescent relationship abuse, sexual assault and domestic violence. Because the research findings to be presented are unpublished, all attendees will be required to sign a confidentiality and non-disclosure statement. This will protect the ability of researchers to publish findings in the future, for the benefit of the field.
