Preventing Intimate Partner Violence Across the Lifespan: A Technical Package of Programs, Policy, and Practices The CDC has released Preventing Intimate Partner Violence Across the Lifespan: A Technical Package of Programs, Policies, and Practices to help states and communities prioritize efforts to prevent intimate partner violence.

A technical package is a collection of strategies that represents the best available evidence to prevent or reduce public health problems like intimate partner violence. This package highlights six strategies to prevent intimate partner violence:

  • Teach safe and healthy relationship skills
  • Engage influential adults and peers
  • Disrupt developmental pathways toward partner violence
  • Create protective environments
  • Strengthen economic supports for families
  • Support survivors to increase safety and lessen harms

The technical package is intended as a resource to guide prevention decision-making to help communities and states stop intimate partner violence before it starts, support survivors, and lessen the short and long-term harms of intimate partner violence.
