Integrating Sexual Violence Prevention into Existing Services
|Integrating Sexual Violence Prevention into Existing Services (203KB / 31 slides)|
Sexual violence is a serious public health and health equity issue that has lasting harmful impacts on individuals, families, and communities. Preventing sexual violence requires broad-based public health strategies focused on the community and environmental factors, to decrease the risk for perpetration. Recent research from the CDC National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey confirms that sexual violence impacts a staggering number of people, and has short and long-term consequences that significantly impact health. During this workshop, presenters will share practical strategies for identifying and modifying community and environmental factors that impact sexual violence, and will discuss strategies to integrate sexual violence prevention into existing programs and services.
Presenters: Yvonne Cournoyer, Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault; Erica Staab, HOPE Center
