TC-TAT's Online Toolkit for Starting a Community Action Team (CAT) to End Domestic Violence
TC-TAT has gathered a comprehensive library of prevention materials, guides, curricula, and websites to help increase awareness.
This publication strives to capture the rich dialogue, successes, lessons learned and strategic questions from Transforming Communities: Technical Assistance, Training and Resource Center’s (TC-TAT) involvement in over 8 years of domestic violence (DV) prevention in faith and spiritual communities. In November 2010 many of those involved in these efforts convened for a Transfer of Knowledge (ToK) Gathering, which is also documented here.
This publication provides an overview of the implementation efforts carried out by the organizations that participated in TC-TAT's one-day PAR workshop and follow-on technical assistance facilitated by Alisa Del Tufo, Founder of Threshold Collaborative in November 2013.
TC-TAT has had the opportunity to partner with indidivuals and organizations throughout California to bring you new and updated resources on working with specific communities and settings in domestic violence and teen dating violence.
As a result of these partnerships, TC-TAT has created its series, Learning from Our Communities.
A powerful tool for women activists and teachers, this video examines the degrading messages in contemporary advertising that undermine girls health and self image...and why men should care too.
Principles 1-9 are adapted from Guidelines for the Primary Prevention of Sexual Violence & Intimate Partner Violence, Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance (2008) and based on practitioner experience as well as earlier research by Nation, M., Crusto, Cl, Wandersman, Al, Kumpfer, K.l., Seybolt, D., Morrissey-Kane, El, and Davino, K. (2002) “What works in prevention: Principles of Effective Prevention Programs.” American Psychologist, 58, 449-456.
In 2004, TC-TAT produced a foundation paper, Domestic Violence Prevention Through the Lens of Cost-Effectiveness, which discussed concepts primarily from a theoretical and research point of view. In 2005-06, this paper was developed into Making the Case for Domestic Violence Prevention Through the Lens of Cost-Benefit. This manual includes expanded descriptions of cost-benefit approaches, tools, a glossary, and resources.
