In this podcast, Jonathan Gates of the Oregon Sexual Assault Task Force‘s Oregon Men Against Violence initiative talks with PreventConnect's Ashley Maier about his insights into engaging men on college campuses, drawing from his time coordinating a men against violence group at an Oregon university (15:21 minutes).
This PowerPoint workshop (with Facilitator's Guide), based on bystander intervention theory and last year's 2009 Featured Event workshop, takes the audience through definitions of sexual violence, how bystanders can be engaged in sexual violence prevention, and includes a scenario for the audience to discuss and practice engaged bystander responses and is geared toward a college campus audience.
The presenter of the webinar shares services that are available to students on a college campus, unique reporting options, challenges and issues pertinent to college students and those advocating for them, and how a local sexual assault program has developed an ongoing relationship with a university in the area.
