Event Date
Add to Calendar 2017-06-26 00:00:00 2017-06-26 00:00:00 Bystander Intervention: Building the Evidence Base for Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention Bystander intervention is a common approach toward preventing sexual and domestic violence. This has helped shift efforts that focus exclusively on perpetrators and survivors to efforts that elevate the role that every member of a community plays in prevention. A new study, released in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, shows that Green Dot, a bystander intervention program, was effective in reducing sexual violence perpetration rates in high schools. This is an important addition to the growing evidence base for bystander intervention. Join PreventConnect, the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, researchers, and implementers of Green Dot to learn more about this new research and to engage in a discussion around the implications this study has for all prevention practitioners utilizing bystander interventions.
