The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic required a rapid shift to online learning for many educators and students. To provide recommendations for delivering violence prevention education in an online setting, this integrative review synthesizes best practices for delivering (1) online learning and (2) violence prevention education. These two sets of best practices were synthesized to provide recommendations for online violence education and were considered through a trauma-informed lens, as informed by recommendations specific to online instruction during COVID-19. These integrative review findings and recommendations may be helpful to instructors who are adapting violence education curricula to online settings, both during the pandemic and in the future.
