The exchange of resources, tools and knowledge to reduce experiences of childhood abuse is at the heart of DUVE’s work.

We believe that preventing violence against children globally requires an interdisciplinary approach that considers a diverse range of cultural contexts and perspectives. At DUVE, this approach demands the free, accessible exchange of teaching and learning tools so academics, educators, healthcare practitioners and others who work closely with children may learn from one another’s research, insights and experiences.

Developed and compiled by our international team of interdisciplinary academics and researchers, these resources are intended to be used by teachers and other education professionals that teach groups about childhood abuse and how to best detect and prevent it.

We’ve divided these resources into five themes, which offer a framework for developing a curriculum around childhood abuse. This curriculum covers the roots and effects of childhood abuse, as well as how it may be prevented.

We hope these resources will help inform your practice and efforts to reduce experiences of childhood abuse in your own city, region or country. In addition, we encourage you to access, share and discuss these free resources within your own community.
