Conscientizing prevention and awareness : an ecological model for halting violence against women and family violence Legacy, Marc

Abstract

As a pressing social problem, education is often cited as an accompaniment to halting violence against women and family violence. As an accompaniment, education is thought to support intervention at the individual-relationship levels of interaction, and, to supplement programs of prevention and awareness at the community-societal levels of interaction. The purpose of this enquiry is to examine multidimensional approaches for preventing violence against women and family violence at the community-societal levels of interaction. As effective as multidimensional approaches are to halting violence against women and family violence, efforts were strengthened when a multidimensional approach coincided with a multi pronged attack from a variety of organizations ranging from international agencies such as the World Health Organization, national agencies such the Department of Justice and Health Canada, along with Provincial and local service providers as well, all under a multidimensional curricular umbrella to halt violence. Nevertheless, this enquiry concludes by finding a fairly consistent message of conscientization from all service providers that violence against women and family violence are intolerable.
