Primary Prevention and Awareness Programs
Primary prevention programs consist of programming, initiatives, policies, and strategies informed by research or assessed for value, effectiveness, or outcome that are intended to stop dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking before they occur through the promotion of positive and healthy behaviors which foster healthy, mutually respectful relationships and sexuality, encourage responsible and safe bystander intervention, and seek to change behavior and social norms in healthy and safe directions. Awareness programs consist of community-wide or audience-specific programming, initiatives, and strategies that increase knowledge and share information and resources to prevent violence, promote safety, reduce perpetration, and promote a healthy and responsible socialization. They also include contact information about existing counseling, health, mental health, victim advocacy, legal assistance, and other services available both on-campus and in the community.
Ongoing Prevention and Awareness Campaigns
Ongoing prevention and awareness campaigns consist of programming, initiatives, and strategies that are sustained over time and focus on increasing understanding of topics relevant to, and skills for addressing, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking, using a range of strategies with audiences throughout LWTech.
Bystander Intervention
Bystander intervention consists of safe, responsible, and positive options that may be carried out by an individual or individuals to prevent harm or intervene when there is a risk of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking. It also includes recognizing situations of potential harm, understanding institutional structures and cultural conditions that facilitate violence, overcoming barriers to intervening, identifying safe and effective intervention options, and taking action to intervene.
