Sex Without Consent. Volume II: Peer Education Training for Colleges and Universities.
Simon, Toby B.; Harris, Cathy A.
One in four college women is a victim of rape or attempted rape. This manual, intended for educators and trainers, presents ways to raise awareness about sexual violence and shows how campus leaders can educate college men and women 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) preparing peer educators for their workshops; and (2) opening dialogue among peers about sexual assault. The manual is presented in two parts. Part 1, "A Peer Education Program," presents, in an easy-to-follow process, 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.
