The public understanding of sexual violence, domestic violence and teen dating violence has shifted over time. For effective prevention messages, we need to understand the current views about this issues. This web conference will highlight the National Sexual Violence Resource Center’s (NSVRC) work with the FrameWorks Institute to research how the general public in the United States thinks about sexual violence and its prevention. The first phase of this recently-released study is already providing some fascinating insights that have implications for our communication strategies. This web conference will explore highlights from the research that compares experts’ knowledge of sexual violence with the general public’s understanding.

Some specific areas covered include: What is sexual violence? What is the cause? Who perpetrates sexual violence and why? Who are the victims? Is sexual violence preventable? Participants will discuss implications for prevention, policy, and communications and will learn what additional information will be coming in future phases of this ground-breaking research.
