Advancing a critical analysis: Incorporating consciousness in prevention efforts
March 8, 2011 and repeated on March 9, 2011
Raising consciousness about oppression and gender issues is an increasingly important aspect of preventing sexual and domestic violence. But how does critically re-evaluating the social world fit in sexual and domestic violence prevention? Many efforts struggle to incorporate root causes of violence, and this web conference presents ways these challenges have been embraced in local efforts. Guest speakers will share their strategies to raise critical consciousness and dialog with participants about ways to help others develop an understanding of sexual and domestic violence linked to a broader social context of oppression and privilege.
Host: David Lee, PreventConnect, California Coalition Against Sexual Assault
Presenters: Annie Lyles and Christine Chang, Prevention Institute
