Since the 1960′s and 1970′s, the U.S. experienced a shift in societal perception that had denied, dismissed and ignored gender-based violence to the acknowledgment of sexual violence as a major social problem. “Changing Perceptions of Sexual Violence Over Time” maintains that understanding perceptions is helpful because it offers a “roadmap of future directions” to further engage communities in the discourse surrounding sexual violence.
On November 9, 2011, join other PreventConnect prevention practitioners throughout the country in the November PreventConnect Reading Club to examine “Changing Perceptions of Sexual Violence Over Time” by Sarah McMahon in consultation with Karen Baker, published by VAWnet, a project of the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence.
The Prevent Connect Reading Club is a small, one hour session where public health practitioners and researchers can discuss the intersections of research and practice in ending sexual violence.
NOTE: This is not a web conference nor a training. Your active participation is essential to the Reading Club.
