Welcome The Promising Practices Network (PPN) website is a unique resource that offers credible, research-based information on what works to improve the lives of children and families. Sometimes referred to as a "best practices" site or a "model program" site, PPN is both of those things and much more. In addition to providing summaries of effective programs in our Programs that Work section, PPN also features Issue Briefs that summarize the current research on various topics, as well as Expert Perspectives, where child policy experts answer our visitors' most pressing questions on a variety of topics. PPN also links to additional research information in all areas related to child well-being, including their physical and mental health, academic success, and economic security.

CEDV Scale - Home Page Welcome to the Child Exposure to Domestic Violence (CEDV) Scale homepage. This is one of few measurement tools for use with children exposed to domestic violence. We are making the CEDV freely accessible through this website. The purpose of the tool is to provide practicing professionals and researchers with a standard method to measure the level of exposure to domestic violence that a child may have experienced, allowing for a recognition of a continuum of child experiences and the need for corresponding continuum of interventions and practice techniques.

Futures Without Violence Futures Partners With Blue Shield to Bridge Health and Domestic Violence Today, Blue Shield of California Foundation (BSCF) announced a new funding initiative to integrate healthcare and domestic violence systems in California. Futures Without Violence is proud to be teamed with BSCF to create a new learning network and develop greater collaboration between safety net providers and DV service organizations. Fifteen different domestic violence organizations and health care facilities throughout the state will partner on this initiative at a time when, according to a recent statewide survey, Californians strongly support a greater role for doctors and nurses in addressing domestic violence. The effort launches with fortuitous timing, given new guidelines from the U.S.
The Child Trends DataBank examines and monitors more than 100 indicators that focus on risks and positive developments for children. For each indicator we summarize what the research says about its importance to children’s development, track trends over time and by subgroup, and highlight strategies likely to improve well-being. We also provide links to state, local, and international data. Child Trends DataBank

Each program description contains easily accessible and vital information, including, at a minimum, a CEBC Scientific Rating, citations and summaries of relevant published peer-reviewed research studies conducted on the program, a brief description of the program, and training and contact information.
