CAP IN ACTION

Trauma Prevention Initiative

   ​

The Los Angeles County Trauma Prevention Initiative (TPI) serves to support intervention work with Hospital-based Intervention, Street Outreach and Community Violence Intervention. It provides Capacity Building through Peer-to-Peer Violence Prevention Learning and Training and Technical Assistance, and works in Prevention in communities through facilitated community engagement and strategic planning (CAP meeting) and implementing community identified prevention strategies.

Partnered with trauma centers, county departments and community stakeholders to decrease trauma disparities and reduce trauma injuries and deaths throughout Los Angeles County. 

Violence is preventable.

        Multisector collaboration is required to address root causes and symptoms of violence. Intervention strategies that address the immediacy of violence are critical to enable prevention strategies to take root. Through a public health approach, TPI is building a model through community empowerment
and systems change that includes intervention, capacity building, and prevention strategies.
