Sexual Assault

Addressing Alcohol’s Role in Campus Sexual Assault

Futures Without Violence has a webinar coming up–Addressing Alcohol’s Role in Campus Sexual Assault. The session will be held March 25th at 3pm ET. IT will be recorded and archived. From the website:

Alcohol use plays a role in 50 to 70% of campus sexual assaults, which has generated heightened consideration of the intersections of sexual assault and alcohol use on campus. This webinar will focus on evidence-based strategies for prevention and response, both in the campus health center and the wider campus community. Current NIAAA research on the intersection of violence and disabilities, and trauma-informed clinical interventions that address both alcohol use and sexual violence will be presented.  The new resource Addressing Alcohol’s Role in Campus Sexual Assault: A Toolkit by and for Prevention Specialists will also be reviewed, with special attention to how to operationalize key prevention strategies.

As a result of attending this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Describe student with disabilities’ experiences of campus sexual violence and alcohol prevention programming
  • Implement an evidence-based clinical intervention to prevent and respond to sexual violence in their campus health center
  • Identify at least two prevention strategies to address alcohol’s role in sexual assault
  • Identify next steps for their prevention work on their campus
