Sex without Consent. Volume I: Peer Education Training for Secondary Schools.
Simon, Toby B.; Harris, Cathy A.
Sexual assault in the high school community is now at epidemic proportions. This manual provides information as to how educators and trainers can raise awareness about sexual violence and how they can educate boys and girls in high school about this epidemic. The guide draws on the Sexual Assault Peer Education (SAPE) program; it is believed that peer educators afford one of the more appropriate ways to inform students. The SAPE program outlines every step of the peer process, from recruiting students to actual workshops. The training program serves two purposes: (1) It prepares peer educators for their workshops; and (2) It opens dialogue among peers about sexual assault. The manual is presented in two parts. Part 1, "A Peer Education Program," presents ways to start and sustain a peer program. Included is information on organizational meetings, the logical presentation of peer sessions, post-training workshops, and some parting thoughts. The second part, "Activities for Classroom Teachers," presents five different activities that teachers can use to heighten students' awareness of sexual assault. Fifteen appendices provide bibliographic information, policy statements, sample recruiting and radio ads, rape statistics, worksheets, tips on facilitating meetings, and other helpful information.
