Violence is Preventable: A Best Practices Guide for Launching & Sustaining a Hospital-based Program to Break the Cycle of Violence

Across the country, members of National Network of Hospital-based Violence Intervention Programs have stopped simply treating victims of violence with the lingering expectation that retaliation and re-injury are inevitable. We have instead begun engaging patients in targeted services during their recovery to interrupt the cycle of violence.  In 1998, the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office for Victims of Crime recommended that “hospital-based counseling and prevention programs be established in medical facilities that provide services to gang violence victims.”   This replication guide supports the development of these programs in medical facilities across the country.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was
    curious what all is required to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

  2. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and
    entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail
    on the head. The issue is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy I came across this in my hunt for something regarding this.
