The Pathways To Prevention webinars are a collaboration between the Injury & Violence Prevention Center at the Colorado School of Public Health and the Kempe Center. They are designed for those working in public health organizations, social services, child welfare, and the non-profit sector. These free, one-hour virtual learning experiences feature researchers working on various topics in the primary prevention of child abuse and neglect, as well as Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Through these sessions, people working in prevention can learn more about the latest scientific research to apply in their work, while also helping to inform researchers about on-the-ground issues and priorities.
