Reading Club: Sexual Assault Prevention for Women With Intellectual Disabilities

People involved in prevention rarely have an opportunity to discuss the impact of emerging research on their work. Prevention Connection Reading Clubs meetings provide a way for these people to meet online and have these discussions. These small, one hour meetings meetings happen over an open phone line, with the web conference used as a common way to view the reading and other materials.

The next Prevention Connection Reading Club meetings will discuss the article “Sexual Assault Prevention for Women With Intellectual Disabilities: A Critical Review of the Evidence” by Erin Barger, Julia Wacker, Rebecca Macy, and Susan Parish. This paper reviews four sexual violence prevention programs that were designed for participants with intellectual disabilities, and generally discusses prevention work focusing on women with intellectual disabilities.

These meetings will be held on:

  • Wednesday, September 16, 11 AM Pacific / 2 PM Eastern
  • Thursday, September 24, 11 AM Pacific / 2 PM Eastern

To register for a Club meeting, go to:

* Barger, E., Wacker, J., Macy, R., & Parish, S. (2009). Sexual assault prevention for women with intellectual disabilities: A critical review of the evidence. Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 47(4), 249-262
