Community-Supported Violence Prevention Strategy:
A Contextual Assessment of Drivers of Community Violence
The Community Violence Prevention Collaborative (CVPC) was designed to act as a catalyst in building collective efficacy among community residents to mobilize, organize, and reduce violent behaviors toward youth, adults, and seniors. The Adler School of Professional Psychology partnered with the Quad Communities Development Corporation (QCDC), in collaboration with Washington Park Consortium, South East Chicago Commission, and Chicago Area Project, to conduct community research to identify individual, community, and societal factors that contribute to high levels of violence and use this data toward creation of a violence-prevention strategy. Targeted communities included Chicago neighborhoods of Grand Boulevard, Kenwood, and Washington Park.
