Strengthening Urban Violence Prevention Through the CWP: Learnings from CSVR's Pre- and Post-Training Evaluation

Strengthening Urban Violence Prevention Through the CWP: Learnings from CSVR's Pre- and Post-Training Evaluation

CSVR has conducted research on South Africa's Community Work Programme (CWP) since 2010. In 2016, the organisation commenced with an eff ort to strengthen urban violence prevention interventions carried out by CWP through their work. These eff orts involved training 145 CWP participants, from four CWP sites across South Africa, in the areas of gender-based violence, working with men, substance abuse, parenting, working with ex-off enders and self-care. This report highlights key fi ndings from the pre- and post-training evaluation carried out by the CSVR. It points to some positive changes in the selected CWP participants' attitudes, the complex nature of eff orts to bring about attitudinal change, as well as the value of utilising such research to generate further discussions with those who carry out violence prevention interventions.
