PREVNet (Promoting Relationships and Eliminating Violence Network)

PREVNet (Promoting Relationships and Eliminating Violence Network) is a national research hub that partners with organizations focused on fostering healthy relationship among children and youth. PREVNet is a Network of Centres of Excellence comprised of 130 researchers, representing 30 academic institutions across Canada, as well as more than 60 national youth-serving organizations. Our purpose is to create space where research and practice converge. We connect the best and brightest minds in the area of child maltreatment, bullying, youth violence, intimate partner and sexual violence, with youth-serving organizations, businesses and governments. This unique partnership model allows researchers to collaborate with practitioners and policy makers to ensure knowledge development is informed by on-the-ground expertise. We examine how experiences in childhood and adolescence can lead to unhealthy behaviours, and co-develop practices, programs, and policy to prevent interpersonal violence, and foster healthy relationships among children and youth.
