Description: 

Sexual assault and teen dating violence prevention education are critical to successful academic and health outcomes for youth. However, when schools and communities must prioritize limited resources, these topics often get lost. This facilitated discussion will explore how to maximize resources and promote violence prevention programs within the contexts of the state statute that supports comprehensive sexuality education (House Bill 1292) as well as the state academic content standards for comprehensive health education. We will discuss strategies to use these guidelines to build stronger cross-issue collaborations, and the role of community-based organizations in making curriculum recommendations to school districts.

Elder Abuse: Incidence and Prevalence on January 27, 2011: 1 - 3 p.m. EST.

Register to attend this free webinar.

The mistreatment of our nation’s elderly citizens may be more prevalent than previously known. In a recent nationwide study, 11% of elders reported being the victim of emotional, physical, or sexual abuse or neglect in the previous year.

What do we know about who is at the highest risk of mistreatment — and what do we know about the perpetrators?

In this event, presented by NIJ and Harvard's Government Innovators Network, three nationally recognized experts discuss the results of the NIJ-funded National Elder Mistreatment Study and what they mean for policymakers and practitioners as our nation faces the unique realities of the ever-growing population of elderly citizens.

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.

Annually, an estimated 600,000 to 800,000 victims of trafficking are bought, sold, tricked, kidnapped and trafficked across international borders. The UN estimates are even higher finding that as many as four million people are victimized each year by traffickers. U.S. citizens, particularly young girls and runaways, are victims of sex trafficking. Join us and hear from a survivor of teen trafficking and learn how you can help.

Jock. Slacker. Superhero. Player. In this webinar, Mark Tappan Ed.D. of Colby College explores the narrow version of boyhood that is sold to boys, and what adults can do about it. Boys are fed a steady diet of media stereotypes about what it means to be a man, including messages about violence, risk-taking, sexual promiscuity, and slacking off. This multimedia presentation offers an overview of this cultural landscape that boys confront everyday, and provides tools that can be used to help boys resist these troubling messages and negative images.
