If violence is learned it can be unlearned.
— Transforming Communities

Intimate partner violence is, indeed, preventable. That is the purpose of NYSCADV's Primary Prevention Project. This project began with our work on the DELTA Project, a national prevention project that supports efforts to design, implement and evaluate strategies that stop intimate partner violence from occurring in the first place. NYSCADV was a participant from the project’s inception in 2002 until 2012, and today continues on in the work of primary prevention.
