Green Dot: A Comprehensive Approach to Violence Prevention
During the 2010 National Sexual Assault Conference, which took place in Hollywood Sept. 1-3, 2010there were more than 80 workshops. The largest track was the Prevention Track sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Workshop Title: Green Dot: A Comprehensive Approach to Violence Prevention
- Dorothy Edwards, Green Dot etc., Inc.
Description: This workshop provided an introduction to a comprehensive model of violence prevention that emphasizes the role of bystanders in addressing power-based personal violence (sexual assault, dating violence, stalking). Informed by social change theory, the Green Dot model targets all community members as potential bystanders, and seeks to engage them, through awareness, education and skills practice in proactive behaviors that establish intolerance of violence as the norm, as well as reactive interventions in high-risk situations – resulting in the ultimate reduction of violence.
Materials: Presenter did not provide materials.
