The Begun Center for Violence Prevention Research and Education at Case Western Reserve University
Flannery, Daniel J.; Singer, Mark I.
Research on Social Work Practice, v25 n2 p278-285 Mar 2015
Established in the year 2000, the Begun Center for Violence Prevention Research and Education is a multidisciplinary center located at a school of social work that engages in collaborative, community-based research and evaluation that spans multiple systems and disciplines. The Center currently occupies 4,200 sq. ft. with multiple offices and individual workstations and is comprised of a staff of over 30 content experts in the areas of applied research, rigorous program evaluation, scientific investigation, policy/program development and community-based practice implementation. Our responsibilities for dissemination efforts lie not only in the area of moving project findings into the scientific literature but also in following up that dissemination by working directly with community providers and policy makers to advance and improve violence prevention efforts. We are currently working toward integrating the Center's research activities and outcomes with the Mandel School curricular activities and field experiences into the undergraduate, master's, and doctoral programs. Given our substantive work and relative areas of strength, we are also working toward increasing training activities with our law enforcement and justice system partners who play a critical role as "first social responders" to the many family and interpersonal problems that are related to violence perpetration and violence exposure.
