Prevention in Practice

This section of the Online Prevention Toolkit provides statistical foundation and supplemental resources as well information on best practices, delivery challenges and other implementation considerations for some of the most popular intimate partner violence/family violence prevention strategies. These downloadable resources are intended to offer visitors topical information to boost program efficacy and to promote creative solutions for overcoming delivery challenges.

Campus Safety

In collaboration with local programs, Title IX Coordinators, the Ohio Department of Health, the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence, and the Ohio Department of Higher Education, the second edition of A Safer Campus: A Guidebook on Prevention and Response to Sexual and Intimate Partner Violence and Stalking for Ohio Campuses is now available in draft form. This guide was created by Ohio's Campus Safety Task Force convened by the Ohio Department of Higher Education.  

Be sure to check out Safer Campus Initiative  for more updates about campus safety.

Empowerment Evaluation Toolkit

This section of the Online Prevention Toolkit provides resources and tools for prevention practitioners and organizations to use for assessment of primary prevention capacity. Eventually, tools for process and outcome evaluation of prevention programs will be available as well. Please check back periodically for new developments!

The outcome measure item bank is a tool created by the Ohio Department of Health Prevention Education Team to assist with alignment of prevention education learning objectives with survey items that will measure participant changes in knowledge, attitudes, behaviors, and skills. Items are generally geared toward youth ages 12 - 21. Outcomes are based on levels one and two of the Spectrum of Prevention.
