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.

Preventionists do not need to be experts on these beliefs, but must have a foundational understanding of the intersections of child sexual abuse, cultural norms, and societal pressures, to create community centered programing. In this web conference, we will highlight Indigenous communities and the work community members are doing to end child sexual abuse.
