Thompson, Janet R.
This guide, prepared by the United States Navy Recruit Training Command, was designed to address the differential training needs of male and female recruits in the area of personal security, i.e., rape awareness/prevention. In section I, the role of the Recruit Training Command is noted, and information on the incidence of sexual assault is provided. The purpose, approach, and organization of the report are described. A summary of rape awareness/prevention educational programs within all branches of military services (Navy, Army, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard) is presented in section II, along with the recommendation and rationale for teaching rape awareness/prevention. Characteristics of the lesson topic guide are given, and a bibliography is provided. The format for the lesson plan for rape awareness consists of definitions of terms and objectives, and suggestions for the instructor, including alloted time and training aids, and 11 transparancy sheets to accompany the lesson. Topics covered in the lesson include terminology, information on the rapist and the victim, the psychological aspects of rape, myths and attitudes about rape, preventive measures, actions if attacked, and actions after rape. A glossary of civil-military terms, and originals for the lesson transparancies complete the guide. (MCF)
