(2 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern)

As we seek strategies to prevent rape, we need to examine not only how to prevent sexual violence victimization, but we need strategies to prevent sexual violence perpetration. And to develop strategies to prevent sexual violence perpetration, we need to know about the perpetrators themselves. Yet, little information is known about youth perpetrators. A recent study in JAMA Pediatrics provides new insight. The study found that nearly 1 in 10 youths reported some type of sexual violence perpetration in their lifetimes. Join one of the study’s authors to discuss the study and to explore implications for prevention.
