If you need a speaker to come to your campus and have a discussion on sexual assault prevention, please contact me. Here is a breakdown of our presentation for college campuses:
Sexual Assault Prevention: Definitions, Consent, Bystander Intervention
Sexual violence is a serious and complex public health problem. We focus on preventing sexual violence perpetration before it happens to achieve the greatest impact. Our prevention strategies are consistent with best practices and are theory-based. From the individual perspective, we will build consent, bystander intervention, and healthy relationship skills with an evidence-informed interactive session. Attendees will be able to vote (live) using their cell phone on myths about sexual assault.
From an organizational perspective, we will show how to engage campus leadership to promote a campus culture of consent, safety, and respect. From a community perspective, we will highlight initiatives taken to strengthen and support enforcement, response, and reporting on and off campus. This session is only one small component of a comprehensive strategy. To change behavior in the long term, the challenge to the Greek community will be to develop a peer-to-peer awareness campaign to reinforce positive norms and skills related to consent and bystander intervention.
1. Understand how you should respond when a sexual assault disclosure is made.
2. Understand the steps we can take on your campus to prevent sexual assaults.
3. Know the resources available on your campus.
4. Formulate ideas on student led peer to peer awareness campaigns on consent and bystander awareness for your campus.
