Title: Adapting Sexual Assault Programs To Effectively Reach Diverse Students
Date: August 24, 2017
Time: 11:00am PST; 2:00pm EST
Duration: 1 Hour

Summary

Prevention research is clear: effective prevention requires campuses to develop culturally relevant programs -- i.e., comprehensive and adapted to fit the specific needs of diverse student populations. However, college-based practitioners have been frustrated by the lack of culturally-specific programming available for adoption. Moreover, under-resourced institutions like community colleges and those serving predominantly low-income student populations have been especially challenged to develop or adapt existing programming to meet diverse student needs.

With that in mind, Holly Rider-Milkovich, Senior Director of Prevention Education at EVERFI, will be hosting a webinar with Michelle Munro-Kramer, PhD, CNM, FNP-BC, Assistant Professor of Nursing, University of Michigan, to discuss how schools can adapt existing sexual violence prevention training to meet the needs of diverse student populations.

During the free 60-minute webinar presenters will:

  • Discuss the use of a research-informed adaptation process to tailor prevention programs for specific populations, contexts, or locations. 
 

  • Describe how this model helped adapt sexual violence primary prevention intervention from a university in the United States to one in Ghana. 

  • Discuss how this model can be applied to systematically adapt pre-existing, evidence-based sexual violence interventions to reach diverse student populations.
