PreventConnect Reading Club adds bystander intervention on campus session

PreventConnect Reading Club

PreventConnect Reading Club announces a second Reading Club session for Friday, July 29 at 11.00 a.m. PST.

Programs to encourage bystanders to take action to prevent sexual violence and domestic violence have become recognized as promising approaches to primary prevention of violence.  In the June 2011 issue of the journal Violence Against Women, there are many articles sharing the results of research on the effectiveness of bystanders programs.

On July 29, 2011, join other PreventConnect prevention practitioners throughout the country in the July PreventConnect Reading Club to examine “Evaluation of Green Dot: Active Bystander Intervention to Reduce Sexual Violence on College Campuses” (Violence Against Women, June 2011 vol. 17 no. 6 777-796.)

PreventConnect Reading Clubs are small, one hour sessions where public health practitioners and researchers can discuss research and practice. This Reading Club will focus on bystander intervention as a means to reduce sexual violence on campuses.
