Our Violence Prevention Initiative has been developed to address the growing need for resources dedicated to violence prevention and preparedness for individuals, families, and communities.
- Social and emotional learning opportunities for the development of healthy relationships
- Disruption of developmental and physiological pathways towards violence
- School oriented violence prevention and preparedness programming
- Leadership and management oriented prevention and preparedness programming
Why and What:
A rapidly growing body of literature identifies that exposure to both interpersonal violence and structural violence prevents individuals and communities from, not only cultivating resilience but in many cases, simply meeting their basic needs.
From an individual perspective exposure to violence can manifest as decreased mental/emotional/physical health, increasing health costs, contributing to missed work or school, and a breakdown in relationships. Communally, the impact of violence contributing to trauma can manifest as a breakdown of social networks, relationships, and positive norms, impacting all areas of social structure including economic viability.
At LiveLifeResources, we are committed to cultivating a culture of health and resilience. Recognizing that violence contributes to pervasive corrosion of society, eroding the experience of well-being, individually and communally, LLR has developed a multi-pronged approach to awareness and action for violence prevention and elimination.
Our prevention strategies provide skills and education intended to prevent violence before it occurs. We do this through social and emotional learning opportunities, teaching safe and healthy relationship skills as well as disrupting the developmental pathways toward violence through techniques like somatic orientation and stress and trauma management.
Our preparedness strategies recognize that at present, violence in daily society is a common occurrence. By providing skills and training dedicated to helping individuals identify and respond when presented with a violent situation we hope to increase the potential for resilient recovery.
Collectively, these strategies work together to help us promote healthy relationships and resilient communities so that we may realize a future free from individual and societal violence.
Additionally, for the past several years, LLR has had the opportunity to develop and deliver school-based Violence Prevention and Preparedness programming for several colleges. and other organizations to
