As an international interdisciplinary project, DUVE works with academics, educators and healthcare practitioners from around the world. Much of the project is dedicated to training the trainers: teachers, midwives, early childhood educators and others who may relay their knowledge to the next generation of childcare professionals to prevent future incidences of childhood abuse.

We also work with aspiring professionals in the education and healthcare sectors: undergraduate and post-graduate students training to be teachers, early childhood educators, physicians and nurses. We facilitate exchange opportunities for these individuals and conduct seminars with them so they may participate in the exchange of knowledge we believe is key to reducing experiences of violence against children around the world.

We have also published articles on the topic of violence against children. Examples of this literature can be viewed here in English and here in Vietnamese.
