A new publication from the Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends primary preventive services that reduce the perpetration of intimate partner violence and sexual violence among youth. Based on a systematic review of 28 studies, the CPSTF found evidence that prevention strategies that utilized one or more of three strategies were successful in reducing these types of violence and potentially increasing bystander action: 1. teaching healthy relationship skills; 2. promoting social norms that protect against violence; and 3. creating protective environments.

The full finding and report can be found on the Community Guide website.
