Prevention programs for large audiences
The following programs are delivered as lectures or presentations, and can be delivered to large audiences. These programs were recommended by PreventConnect community members, and have not necessarily been rigorously evaluated for effectiveness.
“Sex Signals has become one of the most popular sexual assault prevention programs on college campuses through its unorthodox, humor-facilitated approach to examining our culture, sex, and the core issue of bystander intervention. A two-person team of highly-trained educators takes the audience on an interactive, relevant, and often-hilarious exploration of beliefs, behaviors, and gender stereotypes related to dating and sexual interaction.”
Sex Discussed Here!
Topics covered include: both abstinence and safer sex (including how to use safer sex supplies correctly), consent, communication in sexual situations, drinking & sex, and sexual assault prevention.
We End Violence
A variety of programs and presentations that “help participants connect their daily behaviors and experiences to both the causes and solutions to violence. This technique makes the topic more personal to participants (if it isn’t already), and empowers them to do something about it—instead of feeling indifferent, helpless, or hopeless.”
Speak About It
“A combination of humorous yet provocative skits, interactive dialogue, and powerful monologues. Speak About It is the wisdom of an array of mistakes, misfortunes, successes, and perspectives; a compilation of true stories that captures what healthy sex can and should look like, and how to spark dialogues about it. It specifically addresses issues including consent, sexual assault, and bystander intervention. Our goal is to have a conversation about having a conversation about sex, and to leave students feeling educated, entertained and empowered to create change on their campus.”
“Since 2000, interACT has provided sexual assault intervention programs for universities, juvenile detention facilities, housing projects, after-school programs, and drug/alcohol rehabilitation centers. The interACT troupe presents complicated, realistic scenes about domestic violence and sexual assault, and invites audience members to enact possible interventions on stage with actor-educators who reflect the diversity of our urban campus. The performance, which was developed in collaboration with experts in sexual trauma and based on current research, helps audience recognize the warning signs of abusive relations, better understand how individuals feel after being raped, and learn how to effectively intervene in order to prevent assaults.”
