The Why and How of Elevating Practitioner Knowledge for Violence Prevention
Practice-Based Knowledge can compliment and unpack evidence from scientific research to better answer questions such as who programmes work for, how and why. Applying and documenting this knowledge can help us better understand the needs, wishes and realities of those experiencing violence. Programmes that turn out to be effective in preventing violence against women and girls are those that have been honed for years by practitioners. Iteration, room to apply new learnings from implementation, and adaptation are critical features of such effective initiatives. In this exciting webinar, Wangechi Wachira-Moegi, Lyndsay McLean and Devin Faris tell us why it is important to value practitioner knowledge and the different ways in which the field of violence prevention can work to elevate it.
