Ali Mailen Perrotto for VAWnet, the National Online Resource Center on Violence Against Women
In these podcasts, the author and advocate consultant of the VAWnet Applied Research Paper titled Youth Sexual Violence Prevention share their thoughts on the research, trends, and recommendations discussed in the document.
This PowerPoint workshop (with Facilitator's Guide), based on bystander intervention theory and last year's 2009 Featured Event workshop, takes the audience through definitions of sexual violence, how bystanders can be engaged in sexual violence prevention, and includes a scenario for the audience to discuss and practice engaged bystander responses and is geared toward a college campus audience.
The presenter of the webinar shares services that are available to students on a college campus, unique reporting options, challenges and issues pertinent to college students and those advocating for them, and how a local sexual assault program has developed an ongoing relationship with a university in the area.
Primary prevention educator Amy Loftus discusses a program developed to prevent the perpetration of sexual violence. Her nine-session program is presented in local high schools. She also discusses tips and challenges to educating on the prevention of sexual violence in high schools. The slides for this presentation and some other resources are available for download.

Campus-based alcohol and other drug (AOD) and violence prevention efforts are more effective when they are guided by the latest research and tailored to local campus circumstances. Key to this process is conducting a campus-based assessment and consulting the research literature.
This introductory online course covers how best to identify and intervene with youth who exhibit sexually abusive behaviors—to prevent them from hurting any other victims. It provides an overview of how sexual-abuse-specific assessment, case management and treatment can help give a teenager the opportunity to live an abuse-free life.
This 60-minute, interactive training is designed to help educators, youth-serving organizations, and others working with teens to understand the risk factors and warning signs associated with teen dating violence. It takes place in a virtual school setting, complete with navigation through school hallways and classrooms. A teacher’s whiteboard will present information in a user-friendly way and provide navigation, help, and interactive resources for use throughout the course.
