Description: 

Men Can Stop Rape (MCSR)’s comprehensive “From Theory to Practice” Training has equipped thousands of professionals and activists in engaging young men ages 11-22 to prevent gender-based violence. Through interactive group exercises, role-playing, and multi-media presentations, "From Theory to Practice” prepares participants with the skills necessary to motivate young men to take a more active role in challenging attitudes and behaviors that support rape and other forms of men’s violence against women. Past participants have included staff from government agencies, statewide and local coalitions, the US armed forces, law enforcement agencies, and universities. Participants will learn the theory behind our comprehensive “Strength Campaign”, which is based on the social ecological model advocated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a framework for the primary prevention of gender-based violence. MCSR’s Strength Campaign includes the award-winning middle school and high school Men of Strength Club curriculum, "My Strength is Not for Hurting" public awareness campaign, and the Men Creating Change college program. Participants will also learn how to facilitate MCSR’s “Gut Check” Bystander Intervention training to build men’s and boys’ skills in pro-actively preventing violence against women.
