Male attitudes regarding sexual and domestic violence in Vermont
Vermont recently released a report on their statewide survey of male attitudes regarding sexual and domestic violence. In this podcast, Bethany Pombar of the Vermont Network Against Sexual and Domestic Violence discusses the report and its implications for prevention. Learn about key findings and implications below.
I work at VicHealth in Australia. We are responsible for carrying out the National Community Attitudes Survey towards Violence against Women survey. The last survey we ran was in 2009 and we have just completed another one. Results will be released later this year at http://www.vichealth.vic.gov.au/Publications/Freedom-from-violence.aspx
That page also contains information on research we produced last year on bystander behaviour. One of our big findings was that proactive bystanders need to feel supported by their organisation whether it’s an employer or sporting club or local government so there’s a lot of work they can do.
We loved your survey (I basically love everything Vic health has been doing). Thank you for all the work you are doing!
I just need to correct myself about the Australian National Community Attitudes Survey that is currently underway and say that the survey results won’t be public until next year 2014.
How can we access the actual findings?
