Description: 

Stalking is a crime that is frequently minimized and misunderstood, in part because it is a behavior that is socially normalized. Media plays a critical role in shaping our understanding of stalking, and other forms of violence. Media literacy is a tool that we can all use to better deconstruct media and deconstruct the culture at large as we work towards building more effective violence response and prevention methods. Using media clips and examples, this webinar will introduce basic media literacy concepts and deconstruction questions that can be integrated into stalking, domestic violence, and sexual assault response and prevention programs, workshops, and daily conversations.
