Ari Cowan The PAR Model

Violence Integrative Prevention and Restoration (PAR) Model is a new, evidence-based, cognitive approach to violence response and prevention built upon a public health foundation. It is a significant departure from the traditional “punitive” model for dealing with violence. The PAR Model incorporates new thinking about and language for describing violence, provides a new framework for preventing and responding to violence, and presents an effective alternative to the commonly-used traditional punitive-based approaches for dealing with violence.

End of Violence- The National Violence Reduction Initiative

End of Violence

That’s enough.

We’ve been run roughshod by violence for too long.
We now have a promising new, evidence-based
“social technology” that can help reduce violence
and its devastating impact on our quality of life and finances.

In light of the current economic climate, putting
this new approach to work makes more sense than ever.

Let’s get started.


The National Violence Reduction Initiative is a multi-faceted, multi-disciplinary effort to support the next steps in providing the revolutionary new “Violence Integrative Prevention and Restoration (PAR) Model” to people in the United States and throughout the world. The Initiative calls upon the collective wisdom, talent, and commitment of American citizens, businesses, public service agencies, and local, state, and federal governments.

Cabinet department would give peace a chance – Kansas City Star

Barack Obama’s election as president has breathed life into efforts for a U.S. Department of Peace and Nonviolence.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich first proposed the Cabinet-level post in July 2001 — two months before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack. He had seen too much violence worldwide and wanted to create a platform in the executive branch to promote alternative ways to resolve conflicts.
