I. In focus: Child Abuse Prevention Month 2014

Over the past few years, the SVRI has successfully grown its network, and expanded its scope to include child abuse and neglect. We have commissioned desk reviews and shared resources and information on the linkages between child abuse and neglect and later perpetration and victimisation, and the fundamental importance of primary prevention for stopping the cycle of violence.  In honour of Child Abuse Prevention Month<https://www.childwelfare.gov/preventing/preventionmonth/> in the United States starting 1 April, we have compiled a list of SVRI materials and other online resources on the prevention of child abuse and neglect:

1) SVRI materials
