Center for Violence Prevention Research Awarded CDC Grant to Evaluate the Effectiveness of Abuse Prevention Programs in a Youth Sports League
The Center for Violence Prevention Research (CVPR) was awarded $1.8 million by the CDC to conduct a five-year study to evaluate the effectiveness of Circles of Safety®, a CSA prevention program. Through an existing partnership between USA Football and Now!, the study will examine outcomes of the program for community-based youth football leagues.
“Studying if and how educating adults can protect children from child sexual abuse is an incredible research opportunity..." said Melissa Bright, PhD, President of CVPR and the lead researcher on the project. “The data we generate from this study willprovide new evidence of how adult-focused prevention programs can keep more children safefrom abuse and trauma."
