Gender Transformative Parenting Skills to Interrupt the Cycle of Violence

The third event in our year-long series was Gender Transformative Parenting Skills To Interrupt the Cycle of Violence and focused on parenting programs as an early approach to preventing GBV throughout the lifecycle, starting during childhood.

Our first panelist, Prof. Mark Tomlinson of Stellenbosch University, South Africa presented two presentations virtually: Parenting Interventions as Prevention, an overview of the field of parenting programs in international development, and Sikhula Ndawonye, an initiative developed with support of the Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI), using the latest evidence to design cutting edge parenting projects and working with mothers of infants in South Africa.

Kim Ashburn of Georgetown University’s Institute for Reproductive Health presented on The Making of REAL Men: Involving Men in Violence Prevention  in Uganda, sharing the project’s approach, evaluation results and lessons learned.
