If you missed the February 15 SVPN meeting, the presentation is available on line: mms://stream2.video.state.mn.us/mdhvc/sexualviolenceprevent021513.wmv

Huge thanks to Bob Filipczak for his Marketing Safety Across the Generations presentation. Following is the description:

Bob Filipczak is Social Media Coordinator for MnDOT and the co-author of Generations at Work, published in 1999 and republished in 2012. He has been studying the different generations since about 1994 when he wrote a ground breaking article about Generation X for Training Magazine. Since initially studying the Boomers, Gen Xers, and Gen Yers , he has been neck-deep in studying the next generation of young people—the Millennials. His presentation is entertaining, utilizes many ads and marketing campaigns and is amazingly insightful in terms of addressing the question: Are we messaging to the people we are trying to reach?

18. Research study: Institutional betrayal magnifies post-trauma effects of unwanted sexual activity

Institutional betrayal magnifies post-trauma effects of unwanted sexual activity.

A study of 345 female university students found that 233 of them had experienced at least one unwanted sexual experience in their lifetime, and 46 percent of those victims also experienced betrayal by the institution where incidents occurred. In the final analysis, researchers found, those who experienced institutional betrayal suffered the most in four post-trauma measurement categories, including anxiety and dissociation.

The study by the University of Oregon’s doctoral student Carly Parnitzke Smith and Jennifer J. Freyd, professor of psychology, introduces a 10-item analysis tool — the Institutional Betrayal Questionnaire — designed to assess institutional betrayal and involvement. The study appears in the Journal of Traumatic Stress and comes in the same month that “Blind to Betrayal,” a new book co-authored by Freyd and UO psychologist Pamela Birrell, was published.

“Our work on institutional betrayal has coincided with increased public awareness of the harm inflicted by unresponsive institutions surrounding traumatic events,” Freyd said. “In describing the form and effects of this type of betrayal, we hope to eventually turn the dialogue towards opportunities for institutions to protect and nurture their members.”

The study, Freyd said, takes the focus beyond the usual research on emotional, physical and sexual abuse in one-on-one situations to include the idea that victimization within institutions — a university, including residence halls, fraternities and sororities, the military and organized religion — that individuals trust adds a layer of trauma through the betrayal. Because the study surveyed the participants’ lifetime, not all of the incidents occurred while at college, and many were no longer affiliated with the specific institutions where the betrayals occurred.

“Our results suggest that organizations need to widen the scope of their institutional actions and policies to both prevent and respond to sexual assaults,” Freyd said. “This is a national problem. The findings at this one university reach well beyond it, and, we believe, are consistent with what would be found at universities across the country.”

19. Blog: Prevention Lessons: Spotlight on Steubenville

From the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC): Prevention Lessons: Spotlight on Steubenville. Picture this: A high school party, lots of alcohol, star football players, and a young, unconscious girl. A recipe for disaster, some might say.

This is how the scene played out in Steubenville, OH, last August. High school football stars allegedly sexually assaulted a 16-year-old unconscious girl at an end-of-summer party. Horrible? Absolutely! But not everyone was quick to jump to the defense of this young girl. In fact, many people were quick to side with the football stars and blame the victim for “putting herself in that position.” Really? Have we not evolved as a human race? It makes me wonder.

I think about why these victim-blaming attitudes exist and I don’t have to look very far. For years, we’ve inundated our kids with “prevention” messages telling them not to take rides from strangers, not to accept candy from strangers, don’t walk by yourself at night, watch out for the creepy guy in the bushes, watch your drink, and learn self-defense so you can fight back. What do all of these messages have in common? Those to which the messages are targeted (children, young people, women) are solely responsible for their own safety.

Where are the messages saying respect other people and their boundaries, don’t touch anyone without their consent (news flash: unconscious people are incapable of consenting), keep your darn hands to your darn self, if you see someone being hurt or violated in any way, use your phone to call for help NOT to take pictures or videos of the event?!

Our focus on programs and campaigns that are solely based on risk reduction, therefore putting the responsibility for preventing sexual assault on the targeted individual, has led society to believe that it is the victim’s fault if anything happens to them. Now, more than ever, we need to look at ways to prevent sexual violence BEFORE it happens and challenge the current social norms that allow sexual violence to exist in the first place. What does this look like? Here are some ideas:
